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!

Out of so many possible destinations from our Ash Hill/Nadeau Trail campsite, we choose to drive up Stone Canyon and then hike up Lookout Mountain for a view of our campsite.
