The Golden Gate Bridge really is in this photo, it is just obscured by heavy fog as the sign warns! It is common to NOT see the bridge in the summer. Strong winds and chilly temperatures can be a surprise to San Fransisco tourists expecting sunny, hot weather in June, July and August. Walking across the bridge can be an exhilarating experience! The Golden Gate bridge is a toll bridge, south-bound drivers are charged $5.00 per car.
