This is a golden bear outside the California Expo (where they have the state fair) in Sacramento. There are at least four of these life-sized bears near the entrances.
Our capital city seems like it would be a nice place to live. I've heard it gets quite hot during the summer, into the 100's, but one gets used to it quickly. Susan spent her first decade here.
I saw lots of Kings banners, for the Sacramento Kings basketball team, who will be playing this Saturday against the Los Angeles Lakers in the Western Conference Finals. The city is quite excited about their basketball team.
