Look­ing east from Rock Hill, about 1/2 mile north­west of Son­ny Bono Salton Sea Nation­al Wildlife Refuge Vis­i­tor Cen­ter. Pho­to from 2008; the water you see left of the cause­way is an area of the Salton Sea, and is now sand.

Have you vis­it­ed the Salton Sea late­ly? We’ve been recent­ly and there’s lots to see this sea­son.

New con­tent is com­ing soon. Thank you so much for vis­it­ing.


San Diego is the only coun­ty in the US with all three major envi­ron­men­tal zones: ocean, moun­tain, and desert. This blog is about some of the many places that can be vis­it­ed in San Diego’s 3,000 square miles of moun­tains and deserts, much of it wilder­ness. There are three gen­er­al cat­e­gories, his­to­ry, hik­ing and places of inter­est. Each post is geo­graph­i­cal­ly ref­er­enced for GPS nav­i­ga­tion and link to Google Earth or oth­er spa­tial view­er.
