Yosemite in the Summer

Hello I’m Devin from Outlined Cloth, I’ve been a Richer Poorer supporter for over two years and I’m here to outline my faves in fashion, food, and travel. (Caution: Expect large doses of coffee.)

Summer is upon us and it’s time to travel. Our first stop, my fiance and I take to the mountains in one of the most beautiful places on earth, Yosemite National Park. She used to visit every winter with her family while her dad taught painting coursed, but for me it was only my second time. I immediately fell in love and how can you not? It’s breathtaking.


We spent three days exploring the Falls, the Valley floor and Half Dome. At the end of the evening, we made our way to the top of Glacier Point and it was incredible. While the drive was windy and frankly, somewhat terrifying, the scenery was beyond beautiful. Almost like a backdrop. In every direction, you can see nature at it’s finest.IMG_5367-2-2


Back in Yosemite Valley, one of the best ways to take in all the terrain is to go for a bike ride. We rode along the Valley floor to Mirror Lake. From the lake, look straight up and Half Dome’s glory stares down on you. People travel from all over the world to take in these sights and we are lucky enough to be within driving distance.


We stayed in a classic mountain resort just outside the national park’s perimeter, Evergreen Lodge. Complete with activities for the whole family, the lodge is a great place to wind down after a long day in the park. Being the city folks that we are, glamping is more our style. We got as wild as we could by staying in a tent on the grounds. So we had our own tent, but still use of all the hotel’s amenities. Just the way we like to camp.
