Surreal Bigfoot Sculpture

The Happy Camp Bigfoot was a welcome sight as we rolled into town. His "hair" appears to be made of fencing material and... he's got cute toes on those big feet.

Surreal Bigfoot sculpture

This sculpture is either Bigfoot or a crazed mountain man or something unknown. It's about 12 feet tall. It's on the main drag in Happy Camp next to a blue building with a sign saying "Alchemist's Den."
