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!

I've got a week in the Mojave Desert ahead of me, and no fixed itinerary... I'll start in Mojave National Preserve around Van Winkle Mountain and end up in the Owlshead Mountains in Death Valley National Park.
