I would love to visit Fort Bragg and see this. Residents used to throw their glass trash over the cliffs at Fort Bragg. The beach was closed in 1967, but after years of waves crashing into the shore, the glass was shaped into tons of multicolored rocks lining the shore.
So the company that makes sunglasses out of wood also decided to make a really neat website to share all their great experiments with nature. I cruised on over and found this really fun video that makes me want to be an ewok.

Ever been to Virginia City, Montana? Next time you’re out West make sure to check out this restored ghost town that was once a boomtown for thousands during the gold rush. A small stretch of novelty shops and eateries now, it was once home to Calamity Jane, wealth seekers and vigilante justice. I happened to mosey into town for a few hours and was excited to see some old printing equipment in a basement museum. Notice to Type Stealers: “You Taka Our Type & We Breaka Your Arm!”
I was just out in LA and had the pleasure of fueling up at the Arco Helios gas station. This is a fantastic example of looking at a brand or service in a different way. Everything from the unconventional design, to the rooftop planters, solar panels and plantable postcards makes you forget about the fact that you’re getting ready to fuel up and tear up the ozone layer.

We found a Tumblr with some awesome vintage Nat Geo scans and thought we would share. This first one happens to be from VA. The Chickahominy River in 1957. Fantastic! You can find these and a whole bunch more over at http://nationalgeographicscans.tumblr.com/
