The Salton Sea, California’s first climate victim

A desert landscape; abandoned crumbling hotels; dry swimming pools; dead palm trees; a salty lake with white salt-encrusted beaches and dead fish. Welcome to the Salton Sea, an apocalyptic place in the forgotten southeast corner of California.

Weird, weirder, weirdest

Weird, weirder, weirdest – the Salton Sea in the south of California, just two hours from Los Angeles, is a place incomparable to anywhere else in the world. Located at an altitude of 40 meters below sea level, in August this place lies in the sweltering, humid heat and is waiting for the first monsoon rains, as even the Californians call it.
