LUCKY WEST COAST

February 12, 2013

While the Northeast part of the US digs its way out of a horrible snowstorm, the West coast in bathed in sunlight.  How lucky PowerHikers are to enjoy the wonderful weather.  On Southern California beaches everyone enjoys the sun and in the Bay Area the Golden Gate Bridge sparkles in the sunshine.  How lucky to be out and enjoying such spectacular winter weather.get-attachment-6.aspx
