Nice ride report! I have been planning same trip for a while now. Kinda sad to see the change in the area. I remember back in the 60's and early 70's it was still an attractive resort.
I want to hit Indio; then circle the Sea, in other words do the whole loop around the Salton Sea to see all of it. Probably be depressing but a good ride in any case!
