    It's similar to the Dead Sea. A large saline lake without no outlet, in the middle of the desert. Agricultural runoff water is its main source of replenishment except in wet years when mountain runoff (especially from the Whitewater River to the north) recharges it.

    I've taken pictures there a few times. It's important to protect equipment if there's much wind. Blowing salt particles get into everything. A cheap Tamron zoom I had sounded like a rock crusher upon trying to focus it after a trip down there.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Its a similar place to Death Valley with all purple brown colors of mountains as I read at Ansel Adams Death Valley pictures. Ansel prints sometimes looks more pastel but You know him , it looks like You are there.
    I think industry killed there and its not a shame to a country where animal rights are more important than human rights. Its a place like chernobyl or radiation polluted deserts or oceans.
    But USA is not alone , Russia , India , Chine did the same.
    ı think pictures are discusting and not a place for photography if you have not a mixed mind.

    I was there in early June 2011, all the really cool stuff in the Desert Beach area is GONE! The yacht club has been "restored' and is now a visitor's center or something. The abandoned hotel and pool are completely paved over.

    Maybe there some other cool abandoned spots, but the main attraction is now gone forever.

    If anyone in the SoCal area wants to take a photo expedition out to the desert, let me know, I'd be willing to tag along.
    I would like to check out the place,but not till it cools down a little. Let me know when you head out there, I live close by Pasadena, and there are a couple of other local phototogs that would join in also.
