It's a mystery to me...
As I flew out of the San Francisco airport on a clear fall day, I noticed a vast imbalance in the landscape below, an asymmetry that I couldn't quite understand. See that image above? Notice anything odd about it?
I noticed that while there's a lot of development (houses, shopping centers, etc.) on the north side of the strait, there's very little on the south side.
1. Can you figure out what's going on in this stretch of otherwise unused coastline? Is it really the "Lost Coast" of the North Bay? Why so... empty? What didn't happened here?
