Day of the Cranes

October 2000

Don't mind us...
...just passing through.

By this point I was as close as I could get to the middle of the span.

The cranes didn't collide with the Golden Gate Bridge after all.  They did, however, come within 8-12 feet of it.
But that was nothing compared to how close they got to the other bridge, the Bay Bridge, when they floated under it the next day, after waiting near Treasure Island for the next low tide.  The clearance that time was only about 25 inches!!!
Who was riding at the top then?!  Not me!
