A Rusting Golden Gate Bridge

2 Comments

Tolls for cars or motorcycles on the Golden Gate Bridge are now $7 for non fast trak holders and $6 for fast trak holders. The Golden Gate Bridge brought in over 100 million dollar in revenue in 2013. Annual monetary figures for 2014 or 2015 have yet to be reported online. It is also believed that at least 100,000 cars use that bridge daily, BUT, yet the Golden Gate Bridge is rusting. That’s right a recent visit to that bridge I noticed plenty of areas that are heavily rusted and seem worn out. Check out the pics below. This link indicates how often the bridge is supposed to be painted. http://goldengatebridge.org/research/factsGGBIntOrngPaint.php

Shipwreck coast is a lightly used to term to label the area, East of Lands End, and West of the Golden Gate Bridge. You can access via stairs along the coastal trail towards Eagle Point. Eagle Point has a labyrinth. The hike down is easy, the hike back out is not easy.
Once down on the coast, you”ll see relics from Sutro Baths, pieces of wrecked ships, caves and unexplained mineral rock deposits or corral.
It is best to hike it at low tide.
One of the caves excretes a mucus called snottites.
The hike is not for the faint-of-heart.

Shipwreck Coast has several caves. But beware those caves are mysterious and have strange substances oozing from the walls.

Walking on this coast is not easy. Slippery rocks, jagged edges, falling cliff sides, or fallen trees could injure you if your not careful.

You will find many strange substances and some really interesting rock types.

You will also occasionally run into or smell Dead Sea life.

Those trees have a strange iron oxide rust like coating on them.

Photographed and Recorded Space Shuttle Endeavours Final Voyage over the SF Bay

Leave a comment

It was a picture perfect day. Sunny, little to no fog, temps in the 60’s, and no wind.
Friday September 21, 2012 at approx. 10:28am the Space Shuttle Endeavour, or Orbital Vehicle 105 passed over the San Francisco Bay Area.
It was the 5th vehicle and was built to replace the Challenger, which had exploded in 1986. Believe it or not the Endeavour was named after the British HMS Endeavour. The HMS Endeavour took Captain Cook on his first voyage, and this vehicle was named through a National competition amongst elementary and secondary schools in the southern part of the United States.
The Endeavour first launched in 1992 and went on 25 missions and flew over 122 million miles.
The Space Shuttle Endeavour is now headed to the California Science Center in Los Angeles. It will travel through the streets of LA on October 13th 2012. More information can be found here, http://www.californiasciencecenter.org/Exhibits/AirAndSpace/endeavour/Mission26/Mission26.php
