I recently travelled to San Francisco for a conference and snapped some photos (as usual) from my window seat–the best seat to fly in, in my opinion. 😉 Since I was flying with a bunch of other Earth scientists, everyone had their phones out taking photos of the clouds and geology. I almost wish it had been a longer flight just to see more cool stuff!

It looks like you’re going to land in the bay when you land at SFO!
