Bombay Beach, CA

While checking the weather forecast I came across this interesting article and slideshow:

and thought that perhaps people like Mar52, EdSails and others might enjoy it.

    That place is a real **** hole. In a past life when I did movie catering, we were working on a Janet Jackson video during the summer. It was 100+ every day, it stunk and is an eye sore.
    The only enjoyment I got was watching roadrunners chase down lizards. After several days in hell we were back in LA and were told that that we were going back for a re shoot because some of the film had accidentally been exposed. Groundhogs day.

    Hmmm,  Although I know Salton Sea quite well I've never heard of Slab City or Bombay Beach.
     
    Camped at Salton Sea back when I was in Junior High.  All I remember was taking trips to Mecca because there were bathrooms there.
