Golden Gate 75th
In a photo taken Jan. 24, 2012, the Golden Gate Bridge with the San Francisco skyline in the background is seen at dusk in a view from the Marin Headlands near Sausalito, Calif. The bridge was heralded as an engineering marvel when it opened in 1937. It was the world's longest suspension span and had been built across a strait that critics said was too treacherous to be bridged. But as the iconic span approaches its 75th anniversary, the engineers who have overseen it all these years say keeping it up and open has been a feat unto itself. (AP Photo/Eric Risberg)
