I've gone only once there but only because we got lost. The place really smelled bad 😝 although I've always wanted to return back just to explore a little bit. 👍

@1bad_kitty it smelled so fowl, so fowl. Did you see all the dead fish? It was an unlikely beauty
@eye_candy_717 sure. Thanks for asking.
@dnyc929 thanks man.
@kaydunnnn thanks Kathryn
Love the Salton Sea! Beautiful shot !
Such an eery place
Oh no. That smell was enough to keep us away. 💀🐟 we thought is was a recreational lake we could take my friends speedboat in rather than having to drive all the way out to Parker. Boy were we wrong! 😷 Too bad the lakes restoration was abandoned. But in its rotting decline seems to be this unlikely beauty to visit. Ive seen some really cool images of the Salton sea. Almost post apocalyptic city, rusted ruins and odd trees in the lake. All places I want to return to see for myself as well as the famous Salvation Mountain near the southern part of Salton sea. 😊 great pic! 👍
Haven't been there in years
Oooooh. I so want to go there :)
@michiesharine you so should michie.
@1bad_kitty what is salvation mountain all about.
@djkatana it was awesome
@khali310 thanks Jorge
Check out hashtag for #salvationmountain there you'll see some of the wonder that Leonard Knight has created over the years by his own hands. Located in Niland Ca near the salton sea. Made mostly of adobe and hay, painted with biblical message of love. I've never been nor am I religious. But ever since I seen it in the movie, Into The Wild, I've wanted to go see it for myself and meet the man. Apparently he no longer resides there because he had to b hospitalized for dementia and blindness. But his museum alter is still there. Close friends of Leonard are trying to save it and protect it as cultural folk art. There is also a documentary in the works hopefully if it receives full funding. You can watch clips of the docu of Leonard on YouTube. Search thesalvationmountainmovie sorry for the long response. 😊 but hope peaked ur interest to visit it. I know I am and maybe hopefully visit leanird at the home he's at now.
@1bad_kitty dude, Salvation Mountain looks dope. I am headed back to the desert in a few weeks and will have to check this out. Super awesome cool.
@osnatita it was eerie, fly infested, with dead fish remains along the shore. Other than that it was super cool!
@anewfoundjess cool. me to. what did you like about it.
@sbrownlb thank you
@cyndeec Thank You, Thank You.
@reynhornwood I love finding beauty in abandoned or "ugly" things. I mean sure, it's hot, salty, and has a nasty odor... But there is a stillness that cannot be copied. It's a very surreal place, to know it once had so much potential and now lays in mediocrity is incredible. I've yet to find another place that matches it. PS you will LOVE salvation mountain. Also check out the Calipatria mud pots while in Niland if you haven't already!
My hubby and I live in Temecula and we drive out there several times a year. It's such a desolate, weird, wonderful area. The sunsets are epic out there.
@sharidiane I tot agree. It is weird, and wonderful. Can't wait to enjoy the ruins in a few weeks
I agree with @1bad_kitty and @anewfoundjess ... Salvation Mountain is a must-see. The mud pots are super cool. The west side has some amazing places too. We've gone so many times but I still feel like there's so much to explore!
So awesome! Like it!
@sardinha17 this place is magical. Smelly and beautiful
