At the end of March, I went to southern California to see the "Bloom". That is, the desert bloom that was quite good this year due to winter rains. As a bit of a bonus, I was near the Salton Sea that had come to my attention when visiting Joshua Tree National Park some years ago. So, I had to check it out. It was created by a mishap with the irrigation system, in 1905, that allowed the entire water volume of the Colorado River to flow into the Salton Sink, which is below sea level, for two years. Please see this Wikipedia article if you would like to learn more about this strange "sea".
