So far, this is my favorite photo of the trip. Maybe one of my favorites ever. The little slice of reflection just below the far mountain range is the Salton Sea. It's over forty miles away. Many years ago the Colorado river burst it's banks, creating a 400 square mile lake. Because it has no outlet, it has become VERY salty over the years. It is the second largest salt water lake in the country, surpassed only by the Great Salt Lake in Utah. It is also one of the very lowest spots in the U.S. It is only 5 feet higher elevation than California's Death Valley. Other than cropping, this photo has not been enhanced in any way.
This was the second photo I took on that day, and was less than a minute after the one I posted last week.
I got so excited running around because I was witnessing nature's "art" at it's best.
When I turned and looked to the west, I was happily surprised to see this amazing cloud formation lit up by the new day's sunlight.
