Eric B
I am a retired English teacher who has been leading hikes in the Coachella Valley for over 20 years. I lead moderate hikes that I would describe as "slow paced and we stop at everything interesting", anywhere from 4 to 8 miles. I also lead flower hikes where we identify and photograph interesting plants.
