Past glory

Out & About San Diego

When I went on a road trip through Southern California a couple of weeks ago, one of my goals was to visit the east/north shore of the Salton Sea. I had never been on that side.

I knew that many years ago there used to be resorts on that side. The resorts are no longer there, and what vibrancy and fun used to be there is now just a lot of abandoned buildings. Such buildings, though, do make nice Photographic Art.

      The Salton Sea is stinky. It’s an inland saltwater sea, kind of like the Dead Sea over in the Middle East, and stinky, stinky, stinky. Someone thought that people would go to a salty inland sea just like they go to the Pacific Ocean. The difference is the landlocked sea, relative small compared to the Pacific Ocean, is stinky, stinky, stinky from all the dead wildlife that can’t live on saltwater.

    You capture the best picture. Good time for a road trip. Is this where the CA coastal seagulls fly once a year to eat through clouds of little black bugs – or is that another old odd lake? (It’s an alkaline one, so not drinkable water)
