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 wake up to another sunny, windy and warm morning in the Owlshead Mountains

After yesterday's inspiring hike here in the Owlsheads, I'm ready for another one.
