Awesome and very rare pics. Great views coming out the Rainbow Tunnel (tunnel if many names)... of the Golden Gate Bridge. I did a photo shoot in one of the Dead's big rigs there while driving. Thanks for taking these.

Honk honk honk.

My husbands company is doing work on the road in the tunnel and I thought I could share a picture just thought it might be interesting! We literally just found out about the origins of the original name of the tunnel and the renaming of the tunnel!! ENJOY 😉 I DID ❤️

There is a movement to get this tunnel renamed in honor of Robin Williams.
