The Golden Gate Bridge runs northwards from San Francisco, across the mouth of San Francisco Bay (green area at centre left). On the landward north side of the Bay is the city of Oakland (white). The Bay Bridge connects the two cities. The surrounding countryside and mountains are brown in this image.
