Salton Sea – California
After a long drive from Las Vegas (4.5 hrs) we arrived at the historic Salton Sea in southern California. It’s located just about 1.5 hour drive from Mexico and 2.5 hr drive from San Diego.
The history of Salton Sea is long and complex and what you see today is so very different, than the busy and festive days of the 50s where this was a popular spot for vacationing for many Hollywood stars.
Having a lake or sea in the middle of the desert is for obvious reasons a very interesting sight – though today it seems almost like visiting a ghost town. Due to the high level of salinity fish can not survive in the water. What appears to be white sand on the lake side, is in fact millions of fish bones!
Due to its proximity to many of the popular cities and the unique nature of Salton Sea, I definitely recommend a visit here.
