Description

I own no land, instead I have wheelestate. I’ve been a full time RVer since 1997. Working summers as a Park Ranger takes me to many beautiful places and playing during the winter takes me to many more. This blog is simply the story of my life's adventures.

Sky Watch Friday - Salton Sea Sunrise

The Salton Sea is located in southeastern California at 227 feet below sea level. This unique saline land-locked body of water is a critical part of the Pacific Flyway attracting hundreds of species of birds to its wetland habitat.

I camped along the Sea back in winter of 1996 while on a major road trip which you can read more about in next week’s My World Tuesday.

For more views of the skies around the world check out SkyWatch, and feel free to share.

I am having a terrible time anwering my comments and do not know why. The photo I took of ice on the Yakima river was from last year. We have not had any freezing weather yet, but are having a windstorm today. I have been enjoying your blog. I lived in an RV trailer for years and they were the best years of my life.

Love the blues in this. The reflection on the water is gorgeous. I've never been to Salton Sea. Almost got there once but we went some where else.

My school is about 20 miles from the Salton Sea. We don't appreciate it when it "burps" and sends out obnoxious odors! But, your picture is absolutely beautiful! I can't wait to read your blog about it!
