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!

Storm clouds move in, so I cancel my hike, but viewing a dramatic dust storm and then hiking an unplanned 7 miles around Panamint Dry Lake all end this trip nicely.
