San Francisco

And The Golden Gate Bridge

Plane Views Over California

San Francisco is a great city located in a beautiful setting, although it is often shrouded in fog. That may be part of its charm on the ground, but it doesn't necessarily lead to great views from the air. But I've lucked out with clear or mostly clear skies for a few of my fly-overs.

I was flying north to Seattle when I caught this view of the city with the receding fog still enveloping the Golden Gate Bridge.
