The 1.7-mile-long Golden Gate Bridge, an icon of the San Francisco Bay region, connects the city of San Francisco to Marin County, California. At its completion in 1937, the suspension bridge was considered an engineering marvel—the longest main suspension bridge span in the world.

Bench View – California Redwoods

Redwood National and State Parks are a string of protected forests, beaches and grasslands along Northern California’s coast. The trees in California that people call “redwoods” are actually two distinct species – giant sequoias and coastal redwoods, both of them best described in superlatives like tallest, biggest, most massive, or magnificent.

Here is a bench to view the coastal redwoods of California.
