Randy Brown's journey brought a lot of media attention to the perils of the Salton Sea. He arrived at Johnson's Landing, the halfway point, at 7:40 p.m. Friday; his expected arrival was at 6:00 p.m. For the final destination at the Yacht Club, he arrived Sunday, June 14 at 2:30 p.m. Local scientists, community leaders, media, and a cheering crowd waited for him at the finish line. The event also included a farmers market, Salton Sea Art, boating and swimming.

The Borrego Sun was the first newspaper securing an interview with Randy Brown before he started his walk on June 9. Look for the full story on the July 2 print edition of the Borrego Sun.
