Beyond the Dike

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 20 June 2017 in Cityscape & Urban.

In the background, you see an earthen dike which indicates the water was much higher, at some point, just as we saw in Salton City. Many of the abandoned houses you've seen are just on the other side of that dike.

You can see what happened to those on this side of the dike.
