One of the things I find to be most compelling about the Salton Sea is that it stands up so well to repeat visits. Indeed, every time I make the trek out to this visually-arresting and eerie place the changes are immediately apparent. This market, for instance, was in business until not very long ago. Today, it stands abandoned and ransacked.

Bombay Beach, a tiny, flood-ravaged town on the southeastern shore of the Salton Sea, is a strange brew of lovely, shimmering water; vibrant, abundant bird life; countless dead fish; and the decomposing remains of an entire community of homes. It’s this strange juxtaposition of beauty and blight, not to mention the town’s eerie, almost apocalyptic vibe, that keep me returning even though I’m usually nervous and on edge the entire time I’m there.
