I have been posting images of the Salton Sea which lies in the desert region of southern California.
It is nearly the lowest elevation in the USA, but, Death Valley actually holds that distinction.
But, the Salton Sea is the largest inland body of water in California.
Unfortunately, the water contains a high salinity level and is extremely polluted from
toxic run-off from the Coachella Valley.
As scenic as it is, it is a death-trap for fish.
Although, not too bad right now, because of cooler temperatures on the desert.
As the temperatures rise in the next few weeks, so will the stench of thousands (if not millions) of dead fish that line the shores.
NOT too pretty, right?
