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 see that lower Lee Wash ahead is very much steep-sided

I can also see across Panamint Valley to Telescope Peak in the Panamint Mountains.
