Salton Sea Kayaking
Sunday January 30
By: Chad Margolin
I was given (thanks!) some advice and asked to report back by a few. Some thoughts my Salton Sea paddle:
- it is huge
- it is very hard to get to the water's edge because of long stretches of quicksand like mud that encircles the sea
- I didn't get on the water until 1 pm, but ideal conditions in temp and light winds, reflecting the sky
- it has a reddish tint, alot of living birds (among dead things)
- i did an 11 mile paddle to about the middle
- i have been here at the beach for a fly for three days and seen no other vessels on the sea
- everybody thought it was bizarre to kayak on the Salton, but I think it was a very unique experience
