Over the years, several guests have asked us to create either a newsletter or a last-minute availability email list. We’ve finally created both.
Not sure it’s for you? Look at the first couple issues and decide:
- Fall/Winter 2021 — Welcome. Nature Corner: Evening Primroses. 2022 Preview, 2021 Retrospective.
- Spring/Summer 2022 — Introduction. Nature Corner: All About Antlers. 2022 Preview. First impressions with our solar panel plus battery backup system.
To sign up, just fill in the form and check the boxes for the list(s) you want.
Please note: the form can take a second to load.
Why Would You Sign Up?
We use the word “newsletter” loosely. It will include news, primarily about Yosemite, but also about us and Alpine Escape. But we also will include items that aren’t really “news,” such as Tom’s long article about the biology and history of evening primroses (Oenothera elata) in Yosemite. That is, our goal is that our “news” will include natural history and history topics that we find interesting.
The format will be short descriptions of articles with links to make it skimmable and skippable so you can quickly find the parts you’re interested in and skip the rest. Again, our hope is to send out one or two per year.
The Last-Minute Availability List
We expect that this will get sent out a few times a year, most commonly less than a week before the arrival date. So it really only makes sense to sign up if you’re fairly local. We may also use it to open winter dates to people on the list before opening it on VRBO and Airbnb. We’re not entirely sure. It’s a simple, one-click unsubscribe so if you think it might be for you, go ahead and subscribe. If it turns out to be a bad fit, it’s just one click to unsubscribe.
