The golden gate has to be documented here on the blog, right? It's like going to Rome and not seeing the pope. The 'gate' joins the San Francisco and the Marin Peninsulas and its color is known all over the world...Did you know the bridge is orange not red as many of us may thought?
Until the 1840s the strait was called the "Boca del Puerto de San Francisco" but the name changed after the discovery of gold in California.
During the last Ice Age, waters of the glacier scoured a deep channel through the bedrock. The strait is well known today for its depth and powerful tidal currents from the Pacific Ocean. With its strong currents, rocky reefs and fog, the Golden Gate has been the site of over 100 shipwrecks. bahhhh...creepy!
