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!

After driving around Mojave National Preserve last night, I ended up camping in the Mid Hills area. Today I've decided to drive to Death Valley National Park and do a hike over there tomorrow.
