Salton City, adjacent to the Salton Sea, is a city of faint hopes. Amongst the smattering of new and sparsely laid out houses are remnants of the past. This is one. Condemned in 2008 and, as with most of these structures, nothing was done. It is now abandoned … the owner nowhere to be found.

    Toby are you not about ready to come home?… even if it is raining I think it would be more hospitable than these lodgings.
