Go for gold

I rode my bike through the Marin Head­lands to find a quiet spot to en­joy the scenery. The area is usu­ally filled with tourists dur­ing the day but it isn’t crowded at dusk. I de­cided to take ad­van­tage of the quiet and con­tinue on through the Head­lands. I found my­self in the clouds, com­pletely alone and undis­turbed, look­ing down at the Golden Gate Bridge from 270 me­tres up. Each time I’m in San Fran­cisco, I re­turn here to es­cape the crowds and ap­pre­ci­ate the beauty of the Golden City from above.

The Golden Gate Bridge is painted In­ter­na­tional Orange, though in the ’30s the US Navy wanted black and yel­low stripes
