Portrait of San Francisco

Glowing in the first light of day, the Golden Gate Bridge's 1.7-mile, International Orange-painted span links San Francisco with Marin County to the north. "The mighty task is done," the bridge's engineer, Joseph P. Strauss, titled the poem he wrote to commemorate the bridge's opening in 1937. Mighty it was: the bridge took four years and $35 million (over $1 billion in today's dollars) to complete, and also cost eleven lives. Over the years it's been destroyed in numerous movies - attacked by a giant octopus in 1955's It Came From Beneath The Sea and swamped by a tsunami in 2015's San Andreas.

A peaceful respite from the busy city, the green, misty, fern-carpeted coast redwood groves of Marin County's Muir Woods National Monument contains trees that rise 250 feet tall. Scientifically dubbed Sequoia sempervirens ("ever-living" for their up-to-2,000-years lifespan), coast redwoods are found only in a narrow band along the Pacific from southwest Oregon to Big Sur, California.
