Bombay Beach & The Salton Sea
Our goal was the Ski Inn. At 223 feet below sea level, it’s the lowest bar in the Western Hemisphere. We pulled into the parking lot of a dilapidated building across from the shimmering lake, hoping the loose Spanish tile on the overhanging roof wouldn’t slide off and land on our heads. A “For Sale” sign was tacked to the wall by the entrance. We walked in and entered the diviest dive bar of all dive bars in history.
