Salton Sea

Salton Sea

 

This may be the most disgusting and interesting beach I’ve ever been too. In all my years in California, I had not gone out to the Salton Sea. I had to spend some time for the day job in the Palm Springs area this week so I took a trip out there.

It’s a former vacation spot for the rich and fancy in the 50’s, but is now a very dead place. The water flows changed when the San Diego and LA areas needed more water and the water became all salty . . . or something like that. Google it for the real answer.

What was interesting to me is what looks like pretty white coral is all just dead fish bones. I did not stay long at the water’s edge because the fly’s were crazy. They were not biting, but still crazy. The whole area is squishy and kid of gross. It’s like a few feet deep pile of bones all the way around the lake.
