Water currents in the Pacific Ocean off the west coast of California make interesting patterns as they swirl around Point Reyes (top) and out of the San Francisco Bay (right).

Point Reyes is a prominent cape in Marin County approximately 30 mi (48 km) west-northwest of San Francisco. The term is often applied to the Point Reyes Peninsula, the region bounded by Tomales Bay on the northeast and Bolinas Lagoon on the southeast. The headland is protected as part of Point Reyes National Seashore. In this orthorectified image, Inverness Ridge can be seen running along the peninsula’s northwest-southeast spine.

To the southeast, the city of San Francisco glows at the northern end of the San Francisco Peninsula, with the Pacific Ocean to the west and San Francisco Bay to the east. The Golden Gate Bridge can be seen connecting the peninsula to the Marin Hills in southern Marin County.

Part of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge (to the right of the Golden Gate) and the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge (above the Bay Bridge) can also be seen.

Arizona, USA - May 11th, 2009

The dry land of Arizona, in the southwestern USA, is punctuated by green forest around the city of Flagstaff near the southwestern edge of the Colorado Plateau.

In fact, the woodlands area visible is actually the largest contiguous Ponderosa Pine forest in the continental United States and the only alpine tundra environment in Arizona.

Flagstaff is also located adjacent to Mount Elden, just south of the San Francisco Peaks, the highest mountain range in the state of Arizona.

The San Francisco Peaks are a volcanic mountain range, the remains of an eroded stratovolcano, located in north central Arizona. The highest summit in the range, Humphreys Peak, is the highest point in the state of Arizona at 12,633 feet (3,851 m).
