Bombay Beach

Our next stop was one of the original Salton Sea resort towns. Incorporated in 1929, Bombay Beach was once a popular tourist destination. When the tourists left, so did local businesses and most residents. In the years since, large parts of the town have been destroyed by flooding. But there is still a small population living in town.

We drove in, and passed the Ski Inn and a small market – which were the only two open businesses we saw. We parked on the far side of town and set out on foot to explore. As we walked through abandoned trailers and houses, littered with trash and covered in graffiti, the only sounds we heard were our own footsteps and the wind. The whole scene seemed post-apocalyptic. My kinda place… Next up, Slab City.
