Fog Globe - Golden Gate Bridge
O-SGBRRegular price $34.95
Celebrate San Francisco with a Golden Gate Bridge Fog Globe.
Let it fog! This charming take on a traditional snow globe is an affectionate tribute to one of San Francisco's most recognizable sights: the iconic International Orange Golden Gate Bridge enveloped by clouds of swirling grey fog. Each fog globe is carefully hand-crafted and unique, featuring a miniature Golden Gate Bridge model cast from resin and meticulously hand-painted. Sparkling silver glitter evokes the beauty of our beloved and ever-changing fog.
The fog at San Francisco's Golden Gate is legendary. Created when moist ocean air drifts across the cold California current flowing parallel to the coastline, the fog is drawn inland through this narrow gap in the Coast Range. Mounted at mid-span and the south tower pier, the Golden Gate Bridge's fog horns have been guiding ships safely through the perilous strait into the San Francisco Bay since the bridge opened in 1937.
Fog Globe - Redwoods
S-GRWRegular price $34.95
Celebrate nature with an award-winning Redwood Forest Fog Globe.
Our unique, hand-painted globes are inspired by the beauty of Coastal California's old-growth redwood forests and the swirling, life-giving fog they depend on. Each globe is packaged in an attractive gift box, which contains information on the monumental coast redwood (Sequoia sempervirens), the planet's tallest tree species. These majestic trees, which can live more than 2,000 years, grow only in a 450-mile swath primarily along the California coast, and survive the region's dry summer months by capturing fog in their needles.
Winner of the 2019 Public Lands Alliance Innovative Product of the Year Award.
Fog Globe - Alcatraz
S-LAZRegular price $34.95
Billowing through the Golden Gate Straight, the fog that swirls around Alcatraz Island has played a pivotal role in the island's history, from the establishment of the first lighthouse on the Pacific Coast, to six fog-shrouded escape attempts during the federal penitentiary era. Our Alcatraz Fog Globe celebrates this rich history, as well as the ever-changing environs of San Francisco Bay.
