STUNNING LIGHTS RETURN TO SAN FRANCISCO BAY BRIDGE

January 30, 2016

 

Tonight is the night! The stunning light show, The Bay Lights, is returning to the San Francisco Bay Bridge and this time it will be permanent. This immensely popular light display first started a couple of years ago and has recently taken a hiatus. Now it will be back – better than ever for all to enjoy. There will be a beautiful fireworks display to celebrate the relighting of The Bay Lights and the opening of Super Bowl City and a concert by Chris Isaak on The City Stage. What a fun event! We are excited! If you are in the area. try to enjoy it. If not, the relighting will no doubt be on the internet.                  www.powerhiking.com

SUPER BOWL FANS

January 30, 2016

The Super Bowl is in San Francisco. The fans are arriving. The setting is ready. The teams are set. If the weather cooperates, it will be a great week. Visit The Presidio; visit Alcatraz; visit Fort Point; visit Golden Gate Park and the de Young Museum or the California Academy of Sciences; take a ferry boat ride across the Bay to Tiburon or to Angel Island; take a Bay cruise. Whatever you do, enjoy the City. A book that might be some help with fun ideas, suggestions and directions is PowerHiking San Francisco Twelve Great Walks Through The Streets of San Francisco and Environs. Look for it.  You might like it.                                                                      www.powerhiking.comIMG_6203PHSF 2012 jpg
