A few months ago, I took a roadtrip out to the Salton Sea area with Kevin. It had been a place I’ve always wanted to see not for the traditional beautiful landscape but because it is a place that has really interesting history, especially for California. The Salton Sea is one of the most toxic bodies of waters in the world. Its absolutely amazing to learn how it used to be a thriving region for farming and fishing. However, as time as moved along, the salt levels in the water have increased and wiped out most species of life in the water aside from the tilapia that still live in the Salton Sea (but die off quickly). The water is also toxic from all the runoff waste coming from the surrounding farms.
