Golden Gate Bridge 3

I took this photo as a comparison between a huge ocean liner carrier and the minimum height of the Golden Gate Bridge.  It is so high up that it seems like you could put to ocean liner ships one on top of the other.  You can also see some of the roughness of the water in the bay and you can imagine how much rougher it would be in the Pacific Ocean.  I also learned that Joseph Strauss was the main engineer and actually had to face opposition to the project in the first place.  Strauss had already designed and constructed over 400 drawbridges, mainly inland.
