Bigfoot Lives?

I have been on road trip vacation for the last week so I apologize I have not been able to update my blog or visit yours.
During our drive northbound on Highway 101 from the San Francisco Bay Area towards Oregon, we encountered this catchy named store in Garberville, California. Of course, we had to stop to take a look.

The legend of the ape-like creature Bigfoot or Sasquatch is believed to live in the foresty area of the Pacific Northwest. This gift/plant store is appropriately located on a lonely and wooded narrow two-lane highway.

The interesting wood carvings along the roadside made it a worthwhile stop whether or not you believe in the legend.

Going on vacation is the best excuse for not blogging! I am also trying to catch up after my holiday.

This place looks charming. I like that they incorporated Shrek into their legend.

I look forward to your photos of Oregon!

The wooden carvings are so adorable. I wonder if people do buy them to beautify their gardens.

It's funny how Shrek has become almost part of the folk tradition now. !!

My sister lives in the PAcific Northwest and found tracks around her home longer than her forearm... Question is Sasquatch or Grizzly?

I love the carving, especially the bear. Can you imagine running across that Bigfoot on the trails. Great post.
