Bombay Beach - California Ghost Town

ghosttowns.com/states/ca/bombaybeach.html

Bombay Beach was born as the Salton Sea became a playground for vacationers in the 40's and 50's. This whole are was going to be California's version of the French Riviera. A number of problems arose: increasing salinity in the Salton Sea, which created major fish and bird die-offs, and a series of floods from tropical storms in the 70's.
