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!

*** TRAVELOGUE IN PROGRESS *** I have a few days off. Not quite a week, but long enough for a short desert trip via the Eastern Sierra to a mountain range I haven't visited before.
