Day 15-2 Red Hill County Park, Salton Sea
Share
clear

We are now beside a beach 248 ft below sea level at the southern end of the Salton Sea at the Red Hill Marina County Park (see photo). It is a very wild but beautiful place in the Sonny Bono Wildlife Refuge. The Red Hill is a large rock that rises from the very flat sea bed. The marina is long gone as the shoreline has receded 1000 ft or so in the last few years. We hiked 2 miles around the rock and campsite. Looking south we can see two very large geothermal power stations on the edge of the Sea. Tomorrow we will head up the east side of the Sea to Bashford’s Hot Mineral Spa.
