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've had the flu the past week, but who cares! A week in western Death Valley will make me feel better. If I find myself too sick to hike, I can still drive the FJ and explore beauty and solitude that way.
