Hiking, camping and 4WD in the Mojave Desert, Death Valley and Eastern Sierra

These days I'm driving a Toyota FJ Cruiser on desert dirt roads instead of the 10-ton bicycle of all those years past–and then hiking from there. Things change!

Such a scenic 8-mile follow-up hike after the very different White Mountain Peak hike yesterday. About 1900 feet of elevation gain, nice and gradual.
