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've made it back to the FJ near Lee Mines at sunset—perfect!

I'm getting hungry, so I'm going to drive down to Panamint Springs for a meal and a beer. Excellent hike, excellent end of day.
