The bridge is 1.7 miles, but the walk goes by quick. And, I know you won't believe me, but I see things in the water (the bridge is 220 ft high) with my laser vision.
Also, this is the difference 1.7 miles can make in terms of weather. Same day, same time, just opposite ends of the bridge:
Sometimes I wonder why San Francisco isn't called the gloomy city. But yesterday was sunny and nice on this side of the bridge, so I won't complain!
