Steep Creek Falls, Washington

In many places (like Minneapolis), a 52-foot waterfall like Steep Creek Falls would be well-known by the locals and often visited by tourists. Along the Columbia River, however, amazing natural sights are everywhere, and a waterfall of this size can remain relatively unknown.

One of the most accessible waterfalls in the area, Steep Creek Falls near Stevenson, Washington is a picturesque cascade that feeds Rock Creek, a tributary of the Columbia. Steep Creek Falls is perfectly complemented by the surrounding environment. Even though the waterfall is easily accessible and visible from a nearby gravel road, the beauty of the surrounding trees and rocks create a sense of seclusion.

Fourplay is a jazz “supergroup” formed in 1990. Permanently featuring jazz keyboard legend Bob James, bassist Nathan East, and drummer Harvey Mason, the group has also included prominent guitarists Larry Carlton, Lee Ritenour, and Chuck Loeb (currently active). Fourplay is the only musical group ever to be recognized with a Congressional Record from the the United States Congress.
