Apes Can Ride --- Day 13/112

Walk: Presidio

Distance: 3 miles

So the rental bikers, dog walkers, runners, strollers and lopers like Ciwt were startled by their fellow Crissy Field promenaders today.  To say the least!  Bikers nearly fell over, some had to dismount from their bikes to be safe, dogs barked like mad, runners gave the horses a very wide berth.

San Franciscans are used to unusual sites on their streets, but apes on horses was (to Ciwt's knowledge) a first.  Clearly the apes can saddle and ride horses, but it looked like they can't write.  Or at least didn't bother to this afternoon so didn't carry or wear any identification.*

* According to SF Gate, the best guess is the apes were part of a publicity stunt for a new movie, Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes.  Or maybe they were just enjoying a timelessly beautiful site.
