This is a view from the El Cerrito Hills looking west. In the distance on the left is the Golden Gate Bridge, and the Marin Headlands are straight ahead.
This is the site of the El Cerrito Rock Quarry. This rock quarry was operational between 1906 and 1944.
Here is a view looking west from Navellier Street in the El Cerrito Hills.

As of 16 November 2019, the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge is no longer limited to motorized vehicles. The bridge which is 5.5 miles (8.9 km) in length was opened for motor vehicle traffic on 1 September 1956. Now, after 63 years, the bridge is also open for use by pedestrians and bicyclists. Better late than never.
I decided to participate in the celebration of the opening of the bridge for bicyclists, along with approximately 3,500 other bicycle riders. At 10:00 a.m. I rode my bicycle from the eastern terminus of the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge across the bridge. I then arrived at Point San Quentin, the western terminus of the bridge which is adjacent to San Quentin State Prison. I later cycled back across the bridge to Richmond.
I took this photograph of the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge from the Tiburon Peninsula on 6 December 2018.
