“Water and sediment swirl through San Francisco Bay, mixing with the Pacific Ocean on the west coast of California. The Bay, which covers roughly 1,600 square miles (4,000 square km), drains water from approximately 40% of the state — including the Sacramento and San Joaquin rivers and the Sierra Nevada mountains. Surrounding the Bay are the cities of San Francisco, San Jose, and Oakland.”

Yes, I saw you there waving at me, how could I miss you. :-)

You're welcome, luly. Did you see me waving at you? :-)

Thank you, Bill, for this beautiful San Francisco Bay photo and like Donna mentioned “with such beautiful colors!” and I’m thinking of this famous song: I left my heart in San Francisco. :-)

Pat and bbeeton, maybe this will help. Google Maps will let you zoom in much closer than this image will.

My pleasure, Pat.

I couldn't agree more, Donna. It's gorgeous!

You're welcome, Jim! I am as safe as I can be; I hope you are too.

@patmacart -- I think the fault is to the west of the highway, and SLAC is barely visible, with only the above-ground building at the end obvious. I had to kick the magnification up to maximum to make it out, and refer to a couple of other maps to be even reasonably sure. But I know it's there! (I had the great good fortune to get a tour through the tunnel. It's amazing!)

Interesting to look for that @bbeeton ! I found it, but although it's a very straight, 2 mile element, it's still easy to lose it in the blur of the photo! I guess that "ridge" line---that appears to more-or-less have a highway running along it--- would be the fault, then?

Thanks, Bill.

Enlarged just a bit, it's easy to find the airport. Now I'm looking for where the linear accelerator crosses the San Andreas Fault.

I once visited a house on the Stanford Campus where the floor of the "great room" was covered with the appropriate regional USGS quads (properly protected by clear lacquer). What an inspired floor pattern!

Gorgeous aerial shot, Bill, thanks for a puzzle with such beautiful colours!

A great overview of the bay area of San Francisco showing the cities surrounding the bay. Interesting facts on what drains into the bay. TFS Bill, keep safe my friend.
