Decided to spend the night and went back to Unit one the next morning. From the Visitors Center, the hike out to the Salton Sea is about a half mile and then another half mile the trail follows a dike the separates the Salton Sea from a fresh water lake. Just as I caught sight of the Sea, the Gulls could be heard really raising a ruckus. OMG is sounded like the Senate fighting over health care, with each gull trying out out shout the other. The din lasted about 10 minutes and then quit just as quickly as it had started, it ended.
What a difference a day makes. This day there were tons of Snow Geese in the fresh water lake, but none in the farmers field like yesterday. Snow geese flew overhead in the hundreds and my camera worked a bit better.
