From the moment Rand told me about the Salton Sea, I wanted to go.
I’m probably one of the few people in the last 50 years to have had that sentiment.
The Salton Sea is not a hot getaway destination, or even a particularly nice place to kill a couple of hours, but it used to be. The sea was created by accident at the beginning of the last century. Engineers goofed up an irrigation route from the Colorado river, and flooded an area of the Coachella Valley which then became known as the Salton Sea.
