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!

Next up is a short drive up the road into Carbonate Gulch

I've been wanting to check out this area for a while. It's BLM Wilderness on both sides of the road here: Old Woman Mountains Wilderness.
