The Salton Sea
Being somewhat drawn to the aftermath of man’s folly, I found myself curiously addicted to the story of the Salton Sea. During the 1950’s the area was advertised as “The Salton Riviera” and even into the 70’s and 80’s there remained a few lively resort destinations. Today the ravaged consequence of nature’s refusal to conform to man’s desires is evident for all of the senses to absorb. From the acrid smell of dead fish and raw sewage to the corroding landscape, therein lie reminders of what remains from foolish dreams.
