Posted By on Mon, Jan 14, 2013 at 8:40 AM

One of the many, many reasons we enjoy San Francisco is its endless ability to make us stop and say "WTF?"

Take Saturday for instance, when we stumbled across this scholarly bear sitting in a chair shooting horse on the corner of Page and Divisadero. Needless to say, he (she?) probably wasn't the only one shooting smack in Haight the that day.

  • 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.
