CLE ELUM, WASHINGTON
On February 25, 2021 we ventured out to a winter wonderland while staying at the one and only Suncadia Resort- super close to the snowy capped mountains where we went snowboarding in nearly a blizzard! We went to Summit at Snoqualmie for our sloping adventure and it was Brandon’s first time! At Summit, we enjoyed not only snowboarding, but the endless hot cocoas, loaded pork Mac and cheese by the fire pits, and falling off the ski lifts multiple times causing the workers to bring the lift to complete stops LOL.
This was mainly a vacation solely at Suncadia because of all the amenities the resort offers!!! We went to the tubing hill for some tube sledding, enjoyed our hot springs spa sessions while drinking mimosas, having dinner at Portals, eating breakfast on our balcony in the snow, going to the on premise winery, ice skating on the property, soaking up the outdoor heated pool and hot tub while it was snowing, axe throwing at the farm, and snuggling up to each other in our lodge suite eating pizza and watching movies at the Inn!
Cle Elum is a very cute town with amazing pizza dives and local pubs! It’s such a cute area in the winter time to feel the magic in the air. We had such a blast on this trip and enjoyed our snowy getaway so much.
On May 3, 2019 I ventured out to the west coast, yet again; but this time I was meeting a great friend. On arrival, I met Laura at her studio to rest before our big day to explore Seattle. On this trip Laura took me to Gasworks Park, the Space Needle, Pike Public Market Center, and Mount Rainer National Park.
Gasworks Park was super cool!! This park persevered the old gas factory that ran the city. The park surrounds this as a focal point. The Space Needle has always been on my bucket list from watching Grey’s Anatomy, of course- so I was super excited to see it. There were so many flashbacks from the series in Seattle that I saw!
I was most excited about venturing out to Mount Rainer National Park. This mountain is a beautiful glacier with a snowy filled peak. Laura and I had a blast frolicking around the woods, finding gazers that looked toxic, having multiple photos shoots, and almost getting ran over in the street.
To end the day, we went out for drinks and tacos with some of her colleagues. I wouldn’t have wanted to explore this magical place with any one else. Can't wait to visit again.
