Not sure of the other bridge, but the Golden Gate according to National Geography, nothing is original anymore.
Parts are changed daily due to wear & tear, weather condition & exposure to sea.

San Francisco was one of the first places I visited when I was in the US.

Thanks for the memories. Love the pics.

Have a nice day, sweetie.

Holy high tolls! This puts the PA turnpike tolls into perspective.

The Golden Gate Bridge looks beautiful. That's a huge rise in tolls.

Gorgeous feat of engineering! 7 miles! Amazing.

The bridges are beautiful construction. I guess the toll rate should be deemed ok right after so many many years...

Love the picture of the Golden Gate Bridge. I only been over it once in my lifetime but I would love to visit again. Holy Smack with the tolls!!

I do not dilute the Listerine with any water. Buy a bottle and pour it into a spray bottle and spray. Any Listerine will do.

Never heard of the latter, but left our mark on the Golden Gate Bridge during our honeymoon ;-)

I LOVE San Francisco and I am totally in love with their bridges. I use to have a sketched drawing of the design for the Golden Gate Bridge above my bed too.

Those prices...wow! They've really gone up so much since they first opened.
