I had taken this photo at Point Bonita Lighthouse, surprisingly it is just across the bridge from San Francisco. One of the busiest and constantly growing cities in the world. This photo represents sustainable travel because the entire area represents something not everyone gets to see. Everyday thousands of people come to the bay for the city, but what so many forget is the nature that started this area. If more people were to come out and spend time with the nature around them perhaps more efforts would be put in place to save the wildlife and preserve the land for future generations to enjoy instead of looking for the next building site.
