Today we drove up more of Route 1 until we hit San Francisco sometime around noon. We managed to get out to the Golden Gate Bridge and it was a pretty clear day. Last time I came through San Francisco six years ago, the bridge was completely covered in fog. Even driving across it, we could barely see three feet above the car. This time was quite different.
We walked the 1.7 miles across the bridge to the other side, took some photos along the way, and walked back.
While walking, we noticed a group of people up on the hillside near the bridge and decided to head there next. We had a few problems getting there, but we found our way. The view from on the hillside is what I was looking for. To me, it’s the vision I see in my head when I think of the Golden Gate Bridge. Definitely worth the drive up there.
We camped out at a Walmart in Oakland. It’s probably not the best Walmart to camp at, and even the Walmart employees told us they’re not liable for anything that happens to the vehicle or if it gets towed. I guess there’s a lot of crime in that area, but we didn’t have any issues all night.
