Light Breaks Where No Sun Shines - horizon_labs, iron_amurrica - Marvel Ultimates, Marvel (Comics) [Archive of Our Own]
As far as stupid decisions went, Tony was fairly certain that nothing would ever top sleeping with the sheriff. In his defense, he hadn’t known who the attractive blonde was at the time, and he wasn’t planning on staying long enough for the sheriff to find out who Tony was, either. It wasn't just the law Tony was running from, it was the past as well, and he couldn't afford to wait around for it to catch up to him. Now if only he could convince himself to leave.

Workingman's Friend, F. D. Maurice - Website
In every age certain people emerge whose voice, character, personality and ideals captivate those around them. On this day, April 1, 1872, such a one took his last breath. Frederick Denison Maurice was the "most beautiful human soul" that Christian novelist Charles Kingsley had known. "O, he was the prophet, he was the prophet!" exclaimed Thomas Hughes, another Christian novelist. A third acquaintance spoke of Maurice as the most Christ-like individual he had met.

'Rough-Hewn Land' by Keith Heyer Meldahl: Book review - latimes.com
Think of the West and what comes to mind are vertiginous peaks, sculpted tablelands and the infinite vistas of basin and range country. Westerners live in the shadow of mountains that are still rising, on the edge of a continent on the move, over fault systems that can unleash the power of nuclear bombs. More so than any other region of the country, we are defined by geology. The answers lie in the ancient forces of plate tectonics, volcanism and upheaval that birthed the West and continue to shape it. If there is an overarching theme of the book, it is that the region remains geologically alive.The Pacific Plate, which includes coastal Southern California, is creeping to the Northwest at a rate of about 2 inches a year. The Great Basin is stretching, annually adding a half-inch to the distance between Reno and Salt Lake City. In 1872, the Sierra Nevada in an instant lurched 6 feet when one of the most violent earthquakes in California's recorded history jolted the Owens Valley, nearly

Mining claims could mar borders of national parks and wilderness areas, report says - latimes.com
Mining claims threaten to mar the borders of 10 iconic national parks and wilderness areas, particularly the Grand Canyon, where uranium claims have increased 2,000% since 2004, according to a new report by the Pew Environment Group. Mining companies have filed claims to the rights to copper, gold and other metals in addition to uranium in areas around Mt. Rushmore, Joshua Tree National Park and other famous refuges at an increased rate in the last five to seven years because of rising global prices. Claims in such sensitive places are facilitated by an outmoded 1872 law. The law allows corporations to stake out rights to federal lands for mining without a competitive bid and to extract resources without paying royalties. "The 1872 law is carte blanche: You extract everything you can and don't pay royalties on it," said Rep. Raul M. Grijalva (D-Ariz.). "We're still dealing with an antiquated law that in its wake has left huge cleanup and contamination problems all over."

Gruene, Texas - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Gruene (like the color "green") is a ghost town in Comal County, Texas, which was originally named Goodwin. Once a significant cotton-producing community along the Guadalupe River, the economy is now supported primarily by tourism. Gruene lies entirely within the city limits of New Braunfels. Much of Gruene was listed in the National Register of Historic Places on April 21, 1975. Gruene's history begins in 1872 when German farmer Heinrich (Henry) D. Gruene purchased 6,000 acres of farmland three miles north of New Braunfels along the Guadalupe River. He built his house and planted his surrounding land with cotton. In 1878, Gruene opened a mercantile store to serve the several dozen or so families sharecropping on his land. The town benefitted by its location along the stagecoach route between Austin and San Antonio, the store thrived for many years and stimulated local commercial growth. Gruene Hall opened in 1878, and the Thorn Hill School and three large cotton gins soon followed.

Lone Pine, California - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Lone Pine's population, in Inyo County, California, was 1,655 at the 2000 census. On March 26, 1872, the Lone Pine earthquake destroyed most of the town and killed 27 of its 250 to 300 residents. Much of the local economy is based on tourism, as the town is between several major tourist destinations, such as Mount Whitney, Sequoia National Park, Kings Canyon National Park, Mammoth Mountain, Death Valley National Park, and Yosemite National Park. The Alabama Hills Recreation Area are located just west of town, on the road to the Whitney Portal which offers access to Mount Whitney. On the way to Whitney Portal and the Alabama Hills visitors will pass over the two Los Angeles Aqueducts, the First Los Angeles Aqueduct (completed 1913) by the LADWP and the Second Los Angeles Aqueduct (completed 1970). Situated in the Owens Valley with the picturesque Alabama Hills lying to the west attracted many film companies over the years to Lone Pine for filming westerns.

Stanford grad student walking 320 miles in John Muir's footsteps - Los Angeles Times
In the spring of 1868, Muir landed in San Francisco and walked to Yosemite Valley -- the famed conservationist's first ramble through the Golden State. Muir called Pacheco "this rich garden pass" and enthused in an 1872 essay that it dropped him into a Central Valley that resembled "one flowerbed, nearly four hundred miles in length by thirty in width - bounded by the mountains on which we stood, and by the lofty, snow-capped Sierra Nevada."The 320-mile hike is believed to have been replicated only once before McInturff strapped on his backpack in San Francisco and hit the road April 6. The goal of the Stanford University earth sciences graduate student is to see how California manages open space from its most picturesque city to its most famous park. But even by the midpoint in his nearly six-week journey, a few things had become abundantly clear: Much of Muir's garden "of peerless grandeur" has given way to vineyards, orchards and row crops. Smog and dust obscure the Sierra Nevada.
