Today, the Salton Sea is California’s largest lake. It continues to be fed by runoff from local farm fields. Over the years, the sea has gone from being a playground for humans to a sanctuary for birds. May people fear for its future, as the lake’s salt content increases and thirsty Southern Californian cities covet the runoff that feeds it. The lake has an eerie beauty, and it has its devotees. One of them is artist Kim Stringfellow.
