We found the Salton Sea to be a spectacular place for seeing birds but challenging for an extended stay. Think long and hard before making a trip to the nearby Ramer Lake in sunny, southern California.
You might be wondering why were we heading for Ramer Lake? And then you’d ask did we have any idea this was what awaited us?
We had planned several days of bird watching in the Salton Sea area, and Ramer Lake was noted as a spot with over 200 species of birds. Ramer Lake is part of the Imperial State Wildlife Area, governed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
We had driven slowly down the drive to Ramer Lake, made a u-turn, and quickly left. Sometimes a travel destination just isn’t worth spending any time.
