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 road rises via a switchback and then passes this off-camber area

I wouldn't be too comfortable driving the FJ right here due to the angle.
