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!

Most people drive Lippincott Road for the rugged 4WD experience, but I've decided to hike it, so I can hike the adjacent wash as well. Hopefully the 80°F day will help me sweat out any remaining fever. 7 hiking miles with about 2000 feet of elevation gain.
