I want to share something I found very interesting and recently filmed at Salton Sea, California.
That is some crazy area there. A dying lake and with it the infrastructure around. Ongoing since the 70s.

Haunting.

And the Salton Sea is a very strange story indeed.

Thank you everyone!

I did some more reading and yes, Little Boy was trained there as well:

Interesting:
That rusty metal structure on the platform was the radar target/reflector so the bomber crew could see it on their radar.
Those bombers flew in from 520 miles away - Wendover, UT.

They dropped the dummy bombs at 30.000 feet trying to hit that thing.
Fortunately they never did :-)
