A soft spoken man with a wonderfully understated sense of humor stopped by the Summit Hut in 1999, asking if there were any positions open.
Dan Davis had just retired from a distinguished career with the National Park Service, where he had spent time in such magnificent locations as Rocky Mountain and Grand Canyon National Parks. After relocating in Tucson, Dan was looking for “maybe six months or so” of work and we were delighted to have him join our staff, and even more delighted when the “six months” stretched to a full ten years with the Summit Hut!
Dan Davis, on location
Dan has retired again (maybe), this time with plans to wander and travel the beautiful landscapes of the American Southwest and pursue his passion for photography (check out his photo site here).
Happily, Dan has accepted our invitation to author blog stories and show off some of his photos here on Trail Talk – thanks Dan!
