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!

We hike past the base of Peep Sight Peek

This is as close as we're going to get, as we've decided to continue onward instead of taking a detour up toward the peak.
