[TRAVEL] Salton Sea

Before heading to Slab City, we stopped by the Salton Sea.  We weren’t in the area too long, but we did make sure to get some pictures in, naturally.

In general, the place was pretty deserted.  The smell of the hydrogen sulfide was intense when we visited, and many dead fish were scattered on the fine rock like sand on the beach.  It was a beautiful view to check out for an hour, which is what we did, but I’m not sure that I could have stayed entertained for much longer.

The local ranger told us of some awesome wildlife viewing areas nearby, mostly birds.  We were tempted to try to head to those areas, but it would have pushed back our arrival time in Slab City which we wanted to hit prior to it being dark.  Overall, it was a gorgeous place to stop through, but I’m not sure I would make the trip out there strictly for that part.  Hopefully next time we swing through that area we can spend time in the other parts of the Salton Sea that we were told were good for photography and wildlife!
