Note: if you are looking to avoid Desert X “spoilers” stop reading here.  If not, carry on. 

The Lowdown:So, you should know that you probably won’t get to see the actual platform as it’s goal is to be out on the Salton Sea – which is vast and, who knows, maybe you will catch it when it is docked or nearby. If not, here’s a photo of it.

What you can see is the stream of the cameras attached to the solar powered vessel in the Salton Sea State Park Recreation Area Visitor Center – where there are also plenty of walking sticks, should you need one.

If you happen to be checking out the various Salton Sea installations, this might be a good point to have lunch (they don’t sell it here, so bring your picnic baskets), as there are plenty of tables to hang out around the beach and the Salton Sea – all with some pretty incredible views.

We would love to see your photos of Terminal Lake Exploration Platform. Be sure to post them in the comments below – and check out our guide to all of the Desert X installations here.
