San Francisco, USA

One of the loveliest views over the Golden Gate...
US-748283

It is called "Fog rolls into San Francisco Bay through the Golden Gate Bridge".
Here is one similar view of the Golden Gate, veiled in more fog, being more mysterious, hiding more secrets, but in both cards, the sun is the one which makes everything hopeful.

The Golden Gate hides more secrets than you could ever imagine, peoples' sad stories....it is the favourite place for people committing suicide, not just in USA but in the entire world as well.
I dont know whats so appealing about it, like it has some cortex that drags you in...I was reading some articles about this recently, and about many on-going debates of how to prevent people from committing the suicide...my favourite point in those articles was that, you may do something with the Golden Gate and reduce the number of suicides HERE...but that doesnt mean that people wont find another bridge....sad but true..

The well known stamp of the Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming.

Hi Ana,
Great, awesome cards as always. I love them! I'm so thrilled that you came to my blog and you're the 1st follower:) I thought I'd give it a try, even though my life isn't that exciting. I can't wait to receive your letter and don't worry about taking so long to write back. I know how it is, so much going on and never enough time for the things we really want to do. Did you get my birthday card I sent you yet?
Take care of yourself and give the guys a big pet from me.
Big hug to you;)

This is one of the best views of the Golden Gate Bridge! It's lovely.

In Ithaca, we have lots of waterfalls, and last winter, a number (~5) of Cornell University students used them to commit suicide. Very sad. Now, the University has built very institutional looking gates to block access to the falls.

@vagirl: I mailed your letter on Tuesday dear :) And I did get the lovely sweet birthday card! Thank you so much! I did elaborate a bit more on it in the letter :)

@Aimee: Sad indeed....and such a wrong way to change the life you are not satisfied with..

I love this one!! Just few days ago I was having an adventure on Google Street View (lol I feel so nerdy when I do that but I love it!) and went through Golden Gate Bridge. It's so beautiful and colorful :)
