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 have a hike loosely mapped out for the Carbonate Gulch area ahead

However, I'm in driving mode today, so I'll likely not get around to hiking. Perhaps on a future trip...
