askdzignAnother Salton Sea view with skeletal fish remains from tilapia that suffocated oxygen deprivation caused by overabundant algae + increasing salinity. The sea, created accidentally (via man made irrigation canals) when the Colorado River flooded, is the largest body of water in California and has higher salinity than the Pacific Ocean. It's a major stop for migratory birds but increasing salinity, pollution, fish die offs (8 million in one day in 1999 - mostly tilapia originally introduced by humans) and aviary botulism contribute to a threatening imbalance. There's a very enigmatic + apocalyptic feeling to this whole area. Since the 50s, there have been proposals to "save the sea" and the current 25 year, $9billion preservation plan has gone unfunded. Maybe this manmade environmental mess is meant to go? #saltonsea#whpliquidlandscape#vscocam#environment#smelly2d
natesayer Damn I missed that twice now! Are there tours?
askdzign@natesayer I just downloaded the Palm Springs midcentury modern app that gives locations and detailed info for hundreds of homes + other buildings. Most are private so you can only get a street view. There might be bus tours you can take to drive you around, not sure (yuck). During modernism week they have some home tours / cocktail parties you can attend tho.
