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!

In the north end of the Saline Range, just inside Death Valley Park, lie these two high points with great views. A 6-mile-round-trip hike with about 1300 feet of elevation gain from "Stereo Valley."
