Little did we know beforehand what a treasure she was to give to Jesse and I, but more about that later. She already has several singles, EPs and now her first studio album ...

Within the Columbia Gorge, or more correctly attached to it, is another gorge – Oneonta gorge. Most people see the middle portion of it as they take the trail from Horsetail falls up to Ponytail falls and then around to the bridge that crosses the upper reaches of the gorge.
