Gosh, I love fairies and stuff so much and their traditional and simple flower-based clothes are adorable but picture this:
Fairies that ‘evolve’ after years of witnessing human style, crafting complex outfits from natural resources.
Punk fairies with rose thorns lining the shoulders of their jackets, dark makeup made from natural inks and dewdrops fashioned into chains hang from their trousers.
Fairies in ballgowns made from petals and leaves, great flowing cascades of colour!
Fairies who stole dolls clothes and human materials and patched it all together, completely dispelling the need for leaves and such and instead starting a new underground trend of fairies dressing as humans do.
Fairies watching humans pass by and sketching the outfits they see, trying to figure out how to recreate them from their own resources!
A hidden gem in America’s Pacific Northwest is the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument in Oregon. Called an amazing treasure, Cascade-Siskiyou covers more than 62,000 acres and is best known for the unique landscapes created by the convergence of species from the high deserts of the Northern Great Basin to the temperate rain forests of the Pacific Coast.
As BLM photographer Bob Wick said: “This area is a botanist’s dream where the Cascade, Great Basin and Coast Range-Klamath ecosystems come together. You can turn a corner and go from walking through a dense mossy red fir forest to sagebrush and mountain mahogany in a few feet.”
Pictured here are some of the stunning views from the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument, including the sun, full moon, Mount Shasta and Pilot Rock, all captured May 3, 2015. Photos by Bob Wick, mypubliclands.
Nate and I have always had big mountain dreams. While Nate is beyond rad at mountaineering and rock climbing, I still flail around a little at the rock climbing … but he always insists I’ll get there. And because we all know pretty colors and designs are always the thing to push me forward (it’s true, I climb better in bright colors :P), he made me a special chalk bag with my favorite fabric we gathered in Ecuador. We started making a few more and quickly fell in love with them! So we decided to start selling them to support our climbing dreams! Thanks to all your support so far, we’re headed back home to Washington for some great Cascades climbing this summer and I’m headed to NOLS! We can’t thank you enough - so we’ve brought more great bags to you!
We visited spots on Howard;s campus, traveled up the historical and thriving U Street, made our way to Dupont Circle and finally to the Adams Morgan area. We had a great time. We visited the HRC gift shop and got ice cream! It was really nice to see everyone taking in the city and having a great time. We at CASCADE are like a big family and welcome everyone!
