Salton Sea – CA Desert

I’ve seen amazing pictures of the Salton Sea but have never personally been so I was super stoked when I found out it was conveniently located just a short drive east between San Diego and Palm Springs.  Needless to say, I had to make stop at the Salton Sea on my way home from my recent Palm Springs trip.  We went on a Monday and it was an absolute ghost town with the exception of the park ranger who drove by periodically; even the visitor’s center was closed.  Apparently, August is one of the hottest months to be in the desert with temperatures upward of 110°F, it was 115°F to be exact!  If you’re planning a trip to the Salton Sea or desert, definitely make sure you bring a lot of fluids with you especially if you’re going during the hotter months.

As I walked towards the water, I was greeted by piles and piles of dead dried out fish about 10 feet away from the water’s edge.  It was kind of a crazy sight to see and just goes to show just how hot it gets in the area.
