One of the Coachella Valley’s greatest places to visit are also the easiest to miss if you’re not careful.

I love exploring the desert. All of it. We are blessed with an impressive and diverse range of things to do and see here, and for those of us who can’t get enough, we’re in no danger of running out of what we crave anytime soon.

Continuing in new directions, Steve has launched The Rushingwind Project, drawing blues, rock, and jazz influences into songs still led by Native American flute.
