Here are a few reasons why you should take a trip to my hometown:
Coffee - There is Pioneer Roasting Company right in town making the whole town smell like delicious coffee. There are also lots of other wonderful coffee shops with my favorite being Gunnar's which uses my ALL TIME favorite coffee, D&M Coffee from Ellensburg.
Mexican Food: I have lived in the Southwest and in Texas and no Mexican food compares to El Caporal. If you love Mexican food you need to hit Tino up for a meal. Their salsa is the best... I could drink it.
The Lake: There are actually a LOT of lakes around Cle Elum. The closest in Lake Cle Elum and if you keep up the road you can get to many more as well as Cle Elum River.

Roslyn: This is where Northern Exposure was actually filmed. It is a historic coal mining town that has become a bohemian paradise. While here you have to check out the Roslyn Cafe sign, Roslyn Theater with its mural on the back (and get some yeast popcorn), and the oldest operating tavern in the Northwest, The Brick.
