Videos: Watch as I play my flute (in the studio) to videos filmed in nature in my area in Eastern Washington and North Idaho.
The video of this beautiful stream was filmed in the Liberty Lake Regional Park in Liberty Lake, Washington in the Spokane, Washington area. I live in Liberty Lake and the Liberty Lake Regional Park is a very special place for me. My father, Howard T. Ball had a role in preserving this gorgeous land in Eastern Washington. I will be publishing a blog post about his role soon.
