The Salton Sea

One Unique Place

A reader and fan of my blog asked me to share with my readers their experience at Salton Sea State Recreation Area in California. Thank you!

There is a lot to see and do in this recreation area (developed in the 1920s). Bird Watching to Fishing to Boating to Kayaking to Picnicking to Hiking to Camping.

The Salton Sea is a shallow, saline lake located directly on the San Andreas Fault. The Salton Sea sits below sea level and is the largest lake in California. The Salton Sea’s (about 44 g/L)  salinity is greater than the Pacific Ocean (about 35 g/L), but less than the Great Salt Lake (ranges from 50 to 270 g/L). The salinity concentration is increasing by about 1% annually for the Salton Sea. Visitors can experience geothermal activity on the eastern side with mud pots and mud volcanoes.

This place is for the birds! A Winter stop for birds along the Pacific Flyway. Birds begin arriving in October and by January there may be more than 400 species of birds. By May the majority of the birds have flown the coop and moved on. The Salton Sea supports 30% of the remaining population of the American white pelican.
