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 excellent Friendsgiving meet-up ends and I venture out on an easy solo hike today. 11.3 hiking miles with around 1900 feet of elevation gain.
