VWs of.... Bombay Beach

Bombay Beach is an odd sort of place that sits on the edge of the Sulton Sea, in the desert east of Palm Springs. It's a crazy out-of-the-way place that attracts its fair share of people coming just to see it. EP and I are not immune, so we checked it out last spring on a non-vw vacation. We saw a good deal of VWs in this forgotten little community. So, below, I present to you, VWs of Bombay Beach:



It's a flared-fender jamboroo! I think if I ever have a Beetle, it'll be a baja. One that I can just beat with impunity.
Did you ever find out how the Salton Sea was formed? It's pretty funny.

I did a little research on the Salton Sea prior to going, but much more after we got back as it was very interesting. There is a good movie about it:

Plagues & Pleasures on the Salton Sea

We also hit Salvation Mountain, which was beyond interesting.

I really love that area down there.
