Abandoned Motel. Salton Sea North Shore, California

A few decades ago, there were great expectations for the Salton Sea as a tourist resort. Salton Sea is an inland saline lake with no outlet to the ocean. For several reasons, the expected influx of tourists didn't happen. To make matters worse, the level of the lake rose twice during the 1970's, flooding shoreline properties. The only residents in this abandoned and boarded up motel now are a lot of pigeons.

I've got to get to this spot. Missed out each time I've gone out there.
