Wow! What a day!

May 18, 2017

The sky is blue.  The sun is shining. On such a gorgeous San Francisco day it is hard to find a prettier location than Lands End. Located at the westernmost tip of San Francisco, the vistas are amazing. Whether you gaze at the Marin Headlands or back at the Golden Gate Bridge, this is the weather to enjoy such a unique spot. The trail is well groomed and a little over a mile so an easy walk with many view benches along the way. Or just spend some quiet time reflecting on the beauty or watching the ships pass under the mighty Golden Gate. In the mood for culture? Visit the Palace of the Legion of Honor. Beautiful exhibits and a beautiful building. Lands End is a special spot on a sunny day.

FLEET WEEK SAN FRANCISCO

October 4, 2016

The skyline of San Francisco glows with blue lights in the evening in honor of San Francisco Fleet Week.  With a week filled with activities, October 7th – 10th promises to be fun and exciting.  There are ship tours, marching bands – even a high school band competition – , art shows, air shows, the Parade of Ships on Friday and, of course, the amazing Blue Angels.  Prepare to be in awe as they soar through the skies over the San Francisco Bay, spinning and circling only inches from each other.  There is a viewing area on the Marina Green and you can reserve seats online.  Sit, watch and enjoy the catered food. San Francisco Fleet Week has been an October tradition in the Bay Area since 1981.  It promises to be fun-filled, educational and exciting.  Don’t miss it!                                     http://www.powerhiking.comimg_9899

WHAT A BEAUTIFUL HIKE

June 27, 2016

Trees, water, blue sky and sunshine – what could be better than a day at Bon Tempe Lake! Bon Tempe Lake is a favorite of hikers, runners and joggers in Marin County and it is easy to understand why.  The scenery is spectacular.  Part of the Marin County watershed, it is a wonderful place to hike as the trail is wide, easy to follow and not steep.  The lake is stocked with bass and trout so you will probably see a fisherman or two about as you hike around it’s spectacularly scenic perimeter.  Bon Tempe Lake is a great outing for families as there are picnic tables and bbqs as well.  Plan to visit it soon!                                        www.powerhiking.comBON TEMPE
