California Trip, 2014: Walking to the Golden Gate

These photos are from my long walk out to the Golden Gate Bridge. I started at the Palace of Fine Arts and walked along the shore all the way out to the spot under the bridge where Kim Novak jumped into the water in “Vertigo.” Some photos looking back toward the city will give you an idea of the distance I walked.
