Occupy Oakland Vs. Oakland Police (Photos)

Posted By on Mon, Jan 30, 2012 at 9:45 AM

Unless you were a protester or a cop, most Oaklanders stayed far away from downtown this weekend, where chaos erupted, ending with hundreds of arrests, pissed-off business-owners, and a very trashed downtown.

For those of you who decided to skip town for the day, SF Weekly's Kate Conger was at the midday march, and here's a snapshot of the scene.

  • Felton: Touring the Redwoods
    Blue skies meet redwood canopies in the mountain town of Felton, located just north of Santa Cruz on Highway 9. Once a bustling logging community, the town is now a mix of mellow locals and serene wilderness. Visitors can enjoy the redwoods in nearby Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park and splash in swimming holes in the San Lorenzo River. For a bite to eat stop by Rocky’s Cafe for fruit-laden pancakes, barbeque at the Cowboy Bar & Grill and poolside burgers at the Trout Farm Inn. Other stops worth checking out include Roaring Camp Railroads, the Mount Hermon zip line tour, and the educational Bigfoot Discovery Museum. For beer or cocktails a log cabin bar has you covered.
