Reflections on a Silent Sea~


The Salton Sea,

in summertime,

is scorching,

stark,

solitary,

and stunning.

No one here but you,

and the silent sea.
Good news for a change! California voters passed Proposition 68 this week which will allocate $200 million dollars towards saving The Salton Sea. The monies are earmarked towards rebuilding the wetlands that are so crucial to migrating birds and to conserving all the wildlife that depend upon the sea. Funds are also allocated to mitigate the harmful dust that is damaging human health. Everyday, amidst all the negativity, so many people do very good things! Thank you California voters for protecting our wild creatures and wild spaces.
Cheers to you from the soon to be saved Salton Sea~

Standing Up For Yourself~

This little Yellowleg gave me quite a scolding for coming near him!

He may be little, but he’s tough and quite loud, and he stood his ground!

Eventually he settled down with me around.

I understand he feels territorial.

There’s lots of birdies at The Salton Sea,

and a little Yellowleg needs to hold his claim.
