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!

These small dunes sit serenely behind some low rocky hills at the base of the Saline Range. Easy 10.5 hiking miles round-trip with about 750 of elevation gain.
