New to forums. Mini cooper question

Hello! I'm new to posting on these forums, but have been a member for a while. I have a 2010 Mini Cooper hardtop (base model) and have taken it on tons of road trips, but most were well paved. I have a question about "off-roading".

Does anyone have experience driving a Mini cooper through the washboard/dirt roads in Death Valley? Or any similar situation somewhere else? I'm taking a road trip and trying to find out if this will destroy my car or cause damage (other than body damage from stray rocks).
Mainly trying to see if I need to rent another "off-roading" vehicle or if I can use my mini for roads similar to the attached photos
