Dan Coleman has been hiking on his own and with clubs in the Coachella Valley and nearby areas for over 2 years. He has participated in Many hikes as sweep and enjoys mapping and tracking the hikes as well. Back home in Washington State, Dan hiked and camped over many years with family and friends in the deserts in Eastern Washington, the Olympic and the Cascade mountain ranges. As a serviceman in the Air Force, he enjoyed some hiking in eastern France, Germany, and Austria. Dan's experience includes marine navigation and racing as well as search and rescue for the Olympia Harbor Patrol and Civil Air Patrol. Dan recently retired from practice after 40 years as a physical therapist and is looking forward to leading hikes in this area for both Desert Trails and Coachella Valley Hiking Clubs.
