What are some interesting facts about the golden gate bridge?

The Golden Gate Bridge is painted red, but called Golden because of the sun. Its steel cables are long enough to circle the Earth three times! If the US Navy had its way, the bridge might have been painted in black and yellow strips, for ships to see it clearly. Over 1,200 suicides have occurred from jumping off the bridge. The Golden Gate Bridge is the most photographed bridge in the entire world.
