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!

I'll spend 8 days out here this time, including a few days in the Owlshead Mountains area, with a stop in Mojave National Preserve along the way. The weather is warm, but not too hot, really quite perfect for desert hiking and camping right now.
