Is That The Salton Sea In Your Pocket Or Are You Just Happy To See Me?

The Salton Sea is 225 feet below sea level

It was created by a flood of the Colorado River in 1905

That was not stopped for two years

The flood created the largest lake in California

In the 1950s it was a bustling tourist destination

30% of the total population of the American White Pelican live there

The salinity of the lake is rising so quickly that within a decade or so it will be completely dead

The only fish in the lake now are tilapia

If you have a valid California fishing license you can catch as many as you want

There are over 2 million of them in the Salton Sea

They are tasty in fish tacos

With salsa verde and lots of melted cheese


  1. is that pirate mike in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?

  2. If I'd managed to stay up past 9pm on new years eve it would have been a rockin' party

  3. Do you think they have gypsy tears?
