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!

The surreal landscape of this part of the Last Chance Range is my welcoming host for the day. 5.5 hiking miles with about 2000 feet of elevation gain.
