The Salton Sea, California’s largest lake, is rapidly drying up. After 2017, the largest rural to urban water transfer will exponentially accelerate the rate at which the sea shrinks, exposing acres of dried lake bed. The exposed playa, containing 100 years worth of farm chemicals, could become airborne, sending billowing clouds of toxic dust towards major population centers in the Southwest. Located 230 feet below sea-level, in a desolate pocket of Southern California’s Colorado Desert, the plight of the sea is largely ignored. There are a few outspoken people who claim to know how to save it. Randy Brown, community activist, set out to do something no one had ever attempted – to walk the entire shoreline of the sea. In June of 2015, with temperatures reaching 120 degrees, he set out on his 6 day, 115 mile journey. His mission – to raise awareness for the sea, a forgotten place of extraordinary beauty, silently threatening to make itself known once again. Will the people be inspired to save it before it’s too late?
