The Salton Sea: The Skeleton in California's Closet
Video Channel: Never Stop Exploring
What happened to the Salton Sea in California? In my first travel documentary about this strange yet fascinating place in California's Imperial Valley, I explore the sea and surrounding communities of Bombay Beach, Slab City, East Jesus, and Salton City.
The area was also the inspiration for the fictional desert town of Sandy Shores which appears in the popular video game Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online. In the game, Trevor Philips acquires a small landing strip in the area which may be in reference to the Salton City airport.
I encourage you to read more about the lake’s history and the current ecological crisis it has become. You can find an interesting article written by Ian James and Sammy Roth on USA Today here: http://www.usatoday.com/pages/intera.... Thanks for watching! I hope to post more of these as I travel!
***CORRECTION*** The Salton Bay Yacht Club was demolished in 2000, not the 80's.
