Celebrate San Francisco with a Golden Gate Bridge Fog Globe.

Let it fog! This charming take on a traditional snow globe is an affectionate tribute to one of San Francisco's most recognizable sights: the iconic International Orange Golden Gate Bridge enveloped by clouds of swirling grey fog. Each fog globe is carefully hand-crafted and unique, featuring a miniature Golden Gate Bridge model cast from resin and meticulously hand-painted. Sparkling silver glitter evokes the beauty of our beloved and ever-changing fog.

The fog at San Francisco's Golden Gate is legendary. Created when moist ocean air drifts across the cold California current flowing parallel to the coastline, the fog is drawn inland through this narrow gap in the Coast Range. Mounted at mid-span and the south tower pier, the Golden Gate Bridge's fog horns have been guiding ships safely through the perilous strait into the San Francisco Bay since the bridge opened in 1937.

Description
 
The fog at San Francisco's Golden Gate is legendary. Created when moist ocean air drifts across the cold California current flowing parallel to the coastline, the sea, or advection, fog is drawn inland through this narrow gap in the Coast Range.

It then flows up and over the iconic bridge, wrapping it in a misty, billowing embrace. High atmospheric pressure can also push the fog down, blanketing the strait but leaving the bridge itself shining in the sun.

Mounted at mid-span and the south tower pier, the Golden Gate Bridge's fog horns have been guiding ships safely through the perious strait into the San Francisco Bay since the bridge opened in 1937.
