The Salton Sea was created accidentally in 1905 when an irrigation canal diverted from the Colorado River broke. The lake formed within two years.

The sea has neither natural inlet nor outlet. Its salinity is increasing due to salt leeching from the soil and irrigation. The sea is 30% saltier than the Pacific Ocean.

The bones go DEEP. You literally sink a few inches.
