It was supposed to be a super cold day (for the desert...) but instead it turned out to be beautiful. The area around Johnson's Landing is quite large and there are areas which are covered in litter. Just the other day, there was a massive wind storm and I am sure that this past wind storm was responsible for picking up more loose lying litter.
However, there were also items that were half buried, which looked like they have been there for at least twenty years. They would have still be covered in water until not too long ago. Most of the area we were working on had been covered since the floods in the late 70's, but over the last few years have become more and more exposed due to the receding water levels.
Johnson's Landing has always been one of my favourite places to visit. It was the first stop I made the first time I came to Salton City.

Thank you to Imperial Visions for your support!!!! If you have any illegal dumping (or other illegal activities such as agricultural burning, dust nuisance, confined animal spaces), to report, please visit http://ivanonline.org/ . Their intention is connect the community who is effected by, for example illegal dumping, with the authorities who are responsible for doing something about it.
