Salton Sea | 33.3°N 115.8°W.
This harsh land is unforgiving. So I returned to forgive.
Parts of me die here
in this lake of salty tears
exalted by evaporative loss
The Salton Sea is the largest "accidental" lake in the state of California. It spans approx. 35 miles long, 15 miles wide, and its surface is 235 feet below sea level.
With toxic runoff from nearby agriculture and no outlet, the lake's salinity is gradually rising, currently 50% saltier than the ocean itself.
