My neighbor Derek Hine took me and some neighbors on an aerial tour of the coast and the Bay Area. (THANKS!) We flew over the proposed Santa Cruz Redwoods National Monument; up the coast to San Francisco; SF and the Golden Gate Bridge; then back to Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve, Portola Valley Ranch, Stanford, and the Palo Alto Airport near the baylands. A wonderful trip. We were moving pretty fast, the enclosed cockpit was above the wings, and the day was overcast: a few challenges for a photographer. Still, I took a few photos.
Here are views of Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve and SLAC from the air, including the surroundings: Portola Valley, Stanford main campus, San Francisco Bay, Mount Tamalpais, the San Andreas Fault, and more. THANKS, Derek!
