The Salton Sea - in Color!;

Somehow the Salton Sea has put itself on my list of places to visit at least once every year, and every time I come by I think I take better pictures as well as appreciate it's uniqueness more. I even broke down and bought the 'Plagues and Pleasures on the Salton Sea' documentary that I've always been wanting last week. It's a seriously cool place, and if you're anywhere near the SoCal area you really need to go check it out. Here are a few great areas to see when you go down there.

Bombay Beach

Bombay Beach is located on the east shore of the Salton Sea and, like many communities along its shores, has had to contend with rising and falling water levels. A berm now protects the west end of the town but a portion of the town beyond the berm is either sunken under water or is half-buried in mud.
