The Wilderness Society recently published Desert showcase: A look at America’s desert wilderness areas, a great article about the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act that features 11 “stunning American desert wilderness areas.”
Seven of the 11 places are managed by the Bureau of Land Management. And the BLM-managed Bisti/De-Na-Zin Wilderness in New Mexico tops the list.

Oh, Elsa. What are we going to do with you.
Frozen is purportedly set in the 1830’s-40’s, but I’ve been obsessed with finding a style that could marry her coronation gown with her ice gown more seamlessly; the open robes you see during the Regency era, including those being worn by Scandinavian royalty at the time, seemed a particularly apt analog for her… weird underarm-cape. Thing. You also see her mom wearing something very similar for something like ten years, so it’s not a huge stretch to think it could be a popular look in Arendelle. THAT’S MY EXCUSE.
I initially designed this for her coronation, but I figured it wouldn’t hurt to explore how that same silhouette might work with her ice gown as well. Someday, theoretically, I would love to do a more literally iced-up version of her gown, but I figured the alternate colour way would be a nice middle ground to strike.
