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!

In quiet serenity, I watch the sunset at Horse Thief Spring campground—beautiful

However, noisy rodents will break my serenity by running around in the FJ's engine and waking me up at 3h!
