From a great height

October 29th, 2009, 6pm

A few years ago, I got invited to head up to the top of the Golden Gate Bridge by a friend who worked for the transit district. You start by walking out the bridge to one of the towers, each of which have a tiny elevator. You crush into them with not more that 3 people and start the long anticipatory ride to the top. Once you get up there, you come out through a porthole opening like exiting a submarine. We were fortunate to have a spectacular october sunset while we were up there, after having to scratch the visit several times for fog. The views are obviously stunning. you simply can’t stop yourself from repeatedly saying “Wow!” over and over again as your turn your head even slightly. One of the great and lucky moments of my life, to see something so rare and remarkable.
