Point Bonita Lighthouse, Bridge. Marin Headlands, California. March 13, 2011. © Copyright 2011 Steven Tze – all rights reserved.
Another photograph from the Marin Headlands during a weekend stay in Mill Valley. The hope here was for either clouds/fog with some gap for sunlight to shine through or for threatening storm clouds. Not much of either happened. The fog had burned off by the time the tunnel was opened by the National Park Service for the 1/2 mile walk to this location and was slowly rolling in by the time we left. Again, the tunnel carved into the stone hillside is only open from 12:30-3:30pm on weekends and the bridge to the actual lighthouse is closed until structural renovation in 2012.
Despite the lack of fog/clouds, the view from all side of this viewing location is amazing. The lighthouse, suspension bridge, Pacific Ocean, San Francisco Bay, and the city of San Francisco is all around along with the sound of the foghorn and crashing waves.
The suspension bridge to the lighthouse precedes the building of the nearby suspension Golden Gate Bridge.
