In the midst of everyday chaos, imagine being able to retreat to a place where you could fully reconnect with yourself, your loved ones and your creativity. Imagine being surrounded by gardens of vibrant wildflowers and English roses, bountiful fruits and vegetables, and breathtaking views of the mountains, rivers, and stars. Imagine resting your body in a jetted tub as you watch bald eagles from your window, or seeing the Milky Way in is full glory from your deck. This is what you’ll find at Adytum Sanctuary and Resort.

This past January, La Tarasca celebrated their 20th anniversary of providing authentic Mexican food to Lewis County. It’s a testament to the persistence of the Ayala family, who have been part of the community for more than 50 years. “My mom always cooked for her boss, and he would say that they should open a restaurant, but at the time, you couldn’t get the ingredients,” says owner Juan Ayala. Today, ingredients are brought in fresh.

Annette knows about creating beauty and in fact does it professionally. She got her start as a hairdresser and esthetician in 1984. It took her just a year before deciding to expand her services and trained to become a certified electrologist for permanent hair removal as well. Four years later, she took another leap and added permanent makeup to her skills. The latter was a brand new idea in Lewis County at the time. Today, she runs Courtyard Salon and Spa, and talks permanent cosmetics with us.
