Salton Sea, California
The Salton Sea is a large lake in the very south of California, between
Anza-Borrego Desert State Park and Imperial
Valley, south of Joshua Tree National
The Salton Sea was formed in the early 1900's when the Colorado River broke
through an embankment near Yuma, Arizona. Initially the lake covered an
area of about 450 square miles, but due to evaporation its current size
is considerably less that that.
The lake is not particularly scenic, but it is worth a look if you are
in the area. There are a small number of marina-like establishments, but
due to the lake decreasing in size they are now some way from the shore.
