Is Bigfoot running around the mountains of Santa Cruz?
There's plenty of good hiking and wine tasting in the mountains around Santa Cruz, California. Driving around, you'll probably see this little museum and it's worth a look-see, if only to learn a little about the obsession with Bigfoot.
The owner, Michael Rugg, remembers seeing Bigfoot as a child and has devoted his entire life to finding definitive proof. The museum is the most elaborate collection of Bigfoot memorabilia, recordings, videos, news articles, etc that you will find anywhere. The museum is a little musty but it's neat looking at the history of the fascination with this creature.
It's not difficult to let the imagination wander and believe that there is indeed a giant hominid creature living in the dark redwood forests of Santa Cruz.
