USA and Mexico - April 17th, 2012

The Imperial Valley lies in California’s Imperial County, in the southeastern part of the state. The Valley is bordered by the Colorado River to the east and, in part, the Salton Sea to the west (visible here as a dark blue, pear-shaped lake). The city of Mexicali can be observed as a grey area amidst the green crops.

South of Mexicali is the Mexicali Valley, one of the largest and most fertile valleys in Mexico. It has over fifty different crops and is similar to the Imperial Valley in its agricultural production. It is a primary source of water for the region, having the largest irrigation district in Mexico.
