Getting back to some normal inspiration around here… the other day I came across a great site from NY Times Green Blog. The site is called Daily DOCUMERICA, and it is a collection of early 1970′s era photographs from dawn of the Environmental Protection Agency. In 1971 the newly created EPA announced a photodocumentary effort to capture the great changes taking shape in the American landscape. Have a look and follow on tumblr for some daily EPA inspiration.

Hope you all had an excellent 4th of July, ate some barbeque, and drank too much bourbon because that is pretty much what we did around here. In addition to the normal inebriation we did however take a moment to unfold a beautiful and old American flag that was given to Mrs. WildWood’s uncle for his service in the Korean war. The flag itself was made in Valley Forge Pennsylvania, very appropriate for the 4th of July. While it only flew for a brief while yesterday due to the rain it was great to see it in the sun. Happy 4th.

This morning I woke to snow, not sure the last time it snowed this early down here in Virginia. Maybe it will end like this.
Probably won’t get to use the canoe anytime soon.
