A resident of the Coachella Valley since 1979, I can expose you to the absolute best and most exclusive hiking spots, restaurants, museums, and nightlife in the desert area, including the high desert (Yucca Valley), which is mostly known for Joshua Tree Monument and Pappy and Harriet's. I am a teacher, outdoorsman and value traveling. learning about geography, cultures, etc. My wife and I have hiked to the peak of Mt. San Jacinto and camped overnight in the snow, which is an example of the type of adventures that we seek and partake in. I have lived in L.A., Berkeley, CA, and the Netherlands. I love to share local spots with friends and family and I would be happy to share this information and what I know, about the local spots of the Coachella Valley, with visitors.
