Aside from being a great road to ride, California Highway 96 also has a high number of reported Bigfoot sightings. The town of Happy Camp has a great statue to honor the wooly beast.

I know! Crazy, right?!

When I pulled in to the parking lot to get a better look at BF (we’re close like that), Kenny walked over to me and said, “Did you know this was here?” to which I smiled. Before I could even say yes – he muttered “Why am I not surprised?”

Looking down at your GPS to find that you are traveling south on the Bigfoot Scenic Byway is actually pretty funny.
