Glass Beach near Fort Bragg, in northern California, is the result of the power of nature to transform trash into beautiful sight. The residents of Fort Bragg in California discarded their waste in a water dump site. An earthquake in 1906 devastated San Francisco and also decimated Fort Bragg. After that disaster the refuse was dumped into the ocean forming the city dump.
