We were in Palm Springs for the holidays. We have lots of family there, on both sides, so we spent about a month there. While we were there people asked where we were headed to next. When we told them "Salton Sea" everyone, and I mean everyone, turned up their noses at it and acted like it was the worse place to go. Wow, were we ever surprised! What a beautiful spot. Now, I can see where it might be smelly in the summer with all the sulfur, and I can see where it might be hot then too. But this time of year it was spectacular and we spent a few extra days there, just soaking in the sun and enjoying the view.
