Looking back at some photos from my trip to California, I came across this picture I took outside the Governor's office inside the capital building. As it was explained to me, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger found this while on vacation and purchased it for the State of California. It now sits outside the Governor's office. The capital building is very cool and I was glad I took the time to tour it both inside and out.
fyi... The employees at the capital building refer to this bear as "bacteria bear" because all the kids like to touch the bear. It stands about waist high and is probably about 4 to 5 feet long.
