A man who said he lives in nature made for an unusual sight Friday in downtown Fresno.
John Sears is traveling by foot with three mules in tow, visiting seats of government to promote his wish for a trail system with stops every 10 miles linking each state. He said such a network would encourage people to get outside and not rely on mechanized forms of travel.
Sears brought his campaign to Fresno City Hall, where he delivered a dirty, worn set of documents to a secretary in the executive offices. Then he was off, headed toward Merced, Modesto and Sacramento.
