    Walk Among the Shipwrecks on the Bottom of the Aral Sea

    Have you ever wanted to walk across the bottom of the River, Lake or Oceanto see all the ships that have sunk? Well....

    The Aral Sea was once the world's fourth-largest saline body of water. It has been steadily shrinking since the 1960s, after the rivers that fed it were diverted by Soviet Union irrigation projects. And now it's almost gone leaving a desert full of old shipwrecks.

    Read about this from an email link I received a few weeks ago. Although very cool, at the same time sad to see the loss of such a large body of water. Thanks for the post!

    My wife doesn't dive. This would be an interesting way for me to share my interest with her. Thanks for the idea.
