Salton Sea, CA

The Salton Sea is an inland sea which has 25% more salt than the ocean. Flood waters from the Colorado River created it in 1905. The campground is right on the sea and there is a table and bench where you can have breakfast and watch the Pelicans come into land. It smells a little bit because the fish die as the water evaporates and the water becomes more salty. The temperature has risen to 40C. This campground is closing in June due to lack of funds and the fact that the sea is dying, they have re-routed the water elsewhere...no surprise then why the sea is dying.
