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!

This seems to be Cottonwood Spring, but I'm not seeing any significant moisture here

Glad I'm not hoping for water here as I might have hoped for during one of my bikepacking trips a few years ago!
