    Salton Sea Beach-Vision of the Apocalypse

    Set in a stark and barren landscape in the deserts of Southern California the Salton Sea was created by an environmental disaster in 1905 when the Colorado River overflowed its banks and flowed across the desert and into the Salton Sink, a prehistoric lakebed. By the time the river was contained, nearly two years later, the lake covered an area of about 376 square miles. Today, another environmental disaster is killing the lake along with the dreams of those who live there.
