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!

I end this trip with a drive to Kelso Dunes in Mojave Preserve, but decide not to do an evening dunes hike due to rain showers.
