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!

There are places that I see and decide that I want to visit, and eventually I do visit them. Three short, steep and beautiful hikes during my weekend in the Eastern Sierras, including a quick one in Granite Mountain Wilderness before leaving.
