What Did The Idiot See While Walking Across The Golden Gate Bridge Besides The Sunrise?

The Idiot couldn’t resist a walk across San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge when he approached it before dawn’s early light.

The Idiot approached the Golden Gate Bridge on the San Francisco side just before sunrise.

By the time he walked 4,200 feet across the bridge’s main span and entered Marin County the sun had begun to rise. Here’s what sunrise looked like from various vantage points.
