Golden Gate Colors: The Stars & Stripes Fly Above Fort Point, San Francisco. Long May It Wave!

A National Historic Site and part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, Fort Point sits right below the southern end of the mighty Golden Gate Bridge.

 

The fort was completed just before the start of the Civil War. Incredible view await the visitor on top of the fort.

 

Some friendly advice: Dress for cold weather, even in the middle of the summer. This image was taken on 29 July! I was wearing a long sleeved fleece pullover and a patagonia insulated vest and it did the job. Just barely lol :-))
