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've been seeing "The Orange Spot" of the Saline Range when I drive out of Saline Valley—and wanting to hike down there one day. Roughly 13 miles round-trip hiking today.
