This is just in residential neighborhoods... East and North Oakland are also surrounded by the hills.
Oh yeah, Oakland and Berkeley both have areas that rise to 1100-1200 feet. Pales compared to LA's 5,000 though.

Where is that last shot taken from (the one with downton looming in the distance)? The 134 Freeway near Pasadena?

Great shot....too bad it's not as clear as that more often!

That's taken from the Chevy Chase Golf course above Glendale\Burbank. There is a better photo somewhere in C-D. BTW, there's a restaurant up above the golf course that use to have a wonderful Sunday buffet & the views of the city are incredible.


Here are a few more photos of Los Angeles' mountains that separate the basin from the valley from the coastline. There are so many out-of-state haters who never hesitate to put Los Angeles down. Photos shut them up so fast

Milwaukee is over 600,000 pop and has some intersting topography. I personally like the changes, but the skyline seems unfairly small/low due to the hilly nature of the downtown area.

That's what I love about L.A is the Variety/Diversity of practically everything.

Some cities in the South have very interesting topography, too. Like Chattanooga. It's got very steep, flat top mountains and a river gorge nearby.

Another reason why I love Barcelona. Has lots of flat areas but lots of hills around it covered in green that offer a great getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city.

In the U.S., L.A is very hard to top. It has really interesting topography to always keep it interesting.

It has the steepest street in America:
