Spectacular panoramic view of the Golden Gate Bridge, the skyline of San Francisco and the entire San
Francisco Bay as viewed from one of the four Vista Points on Conzelman Road in Marin Headlands
which are mountains just north of the Golden Gate Bridge. This is where you can find the most
impressive spot to view the Golden Gate Bridge. It's so high up that you literally can see for miles. And
to look down, there are turquoise coves and even a Black Sand Beach. There are so much more to see
than just the bridge. It's so beautiful it takes your breath away! This is one place I will want to come
back to!
Panoramic view of Berkeley and San Francisco Bay as viewed from the Scenic Overlook (Berkeley Bay View Point) on the
hills above the campus of the University of California at Berkeley (UC Berkeley). This Scenic Overlook is located at 1
Centennial Dr, Berkeley, CA 94720. I came here again on the afternoon of May 28, 2016.
Panoramic view of Berkeley and San Francisco Bay as viewed from one of several roadside pull-out scenic
overlooks on Grizzly Peak Blvd which is on the ridgeline of the Berkeley Hills above Berkeley in California.
Grizzly Peak Blvd is a windy curvy road with fantastic panoramic views of the San Francisco Bay. I came up to
this Grizzly Peak Blvd on the afternoon of May 28, 2016. It was a sunny day with no wind and the air is
somewhat hazy.

One can reach Grizzly Peak Blvd by setting the destination of the GPS navigator at either (1) junction of Grizzly
Peak Blvd & Claremont Ave. & Fish Ranch Rd, Oakland 94705 or (2) junction of Grizzly Peak Blvd &
Centennial Drive, Berkeley 94720. There are several roadside pull-out scenic overlooks between these two
junctions to enjoy the spectacular views.
Two more views with slightly different angle from the Twin Peak Park.
Spectacular views of San Francisco and San Francisco Bay as viewed from the Twin Peaks Park at the elevation 922 feet
in the middle of San Francisco. It is located at 501 Twin Peaks Blvd, San Francisco, CA 94114.

We came to the Twin Peaks Park on June 14, 2016 to enjoy the fantastic views.

I also used the movie mode of my camera to scan the panoramic views from the Twin Peaks Park as shown in the following
two YouTube movie clips with slightly different ranges:

Fantastic San Francisco Bay as viewed from the front gate of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints located at 4780 Lincoln Ave, Oakland, CA 94602. It is on
the Oakland Hills near the junction of Lincoln Ave, Lincoln Way and Joaquin Miller Rd. This church and its outside parking lot were temporary closed probably due to
Covid-19 pandemic. The photos of this magnificent church can be seen
here, here and here.

In this view, the tallest building is Salesforce Tower in downtown San Francisco on the left side on this picture. Many tall buildings in the foreground are in downtown
Oakland. The Oakland-San Francisco Bay Bridge is on the right side of this picture. The Golden Gate Bridge is further away but visible.

On July 30, 2020, we drove up the hills behind downtown Oakland to do some hiking in Reinhardt Redwood Regional Park. We enjoyed fantastic views of San Francisco
Bay from several small roadside pull-out vista points along Lincoln Avenue, Skyline Blvd, Joaquin Miller Rd, and Redwood Road.
Similar view from different side of Lincoln Avenue near the front gate of the church on Oakland Hills. Downtown San Francisco and Downtown Oakland on opposite sides of San
Francisco Bay. The Golden Gate Bridge is on the right side of this picture.
On August 1, 2020, we drove up to Hayward Highland which is about 16 miles south of Oakland Hills. Again we enjoyed fantastic views of San Francisco Bay from several roadside vista
points on Hayward Highland. This is one of the views of San Francisco Bay as viewed from a roadside Vista Point A on Bailey Ranch Road near the junction of Bailey Ranch Road and
Bay Heights Road in Hayward, California.

Zoom in on San Francisco Bay from roadside Vista Point A on Bailey Ranch Road. In this picture, San Francisco downtown is on the left side and Oakland downtown is on the right side.
The open field on the east side of San Francisco Bay opposite to San Francisco downtown is Oakland International Airport with two parallel runways visible on this picture.

There were no wind on both July 30 and August 1, 2020 such that the air was hazy with fog and smog. I may come to both Hayward Hills and Oakland Hills again on windy days in the
future, hoping the wind will blow away fog, haze and smog so that the views can be much more clear and sharp.
Zoom in on San Mateo Bridge and San Francisco Bay as viewed from roadside Vista Point A on Bailey Ranch Road on Hayward Highland on August 1, 2020.
