Difficult to replace

Many colours of the South Bay

South Bay of Silicon Valley in California consists of all sorts of strange and weird colours. Which are especially noticeable from the air when landing at SFO.


There’s one area in particular besides the Palo Alto airport that is crimson red.


Turns out that this area is a salt marsh known as The Baylands. Where Pickleweed gives the area its red-ish colour.
