Here are some photos from a weekend getaway to The Lodge at Suncadia, a gorgeous mountain resort out in Cle Elum, Washington. This trip reminded me that I need to get out and explore the PNW more often; the hiking trails and mountain views were absolutely beautiful. I definitely recommend visiting Suncadia if you need an outdoorsy retreat away from the city – which for me is always a great way recharge and clear my mind!
