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 a walk around the Lee Mines area, it will be 13 miles or so hiking down upper-middle Lee Wash and back over the Darwin Plateau. Perfect weather, except for the dust storm down in Panamint Valley below.
