by Planita The Republic of California in 2019 This thread would be depository for the various maps, wikipages, wikiboxes, and graphics for my Gran Lago timeline. Yes this will work like @Kanan's excellent TL on this forum too. For a bit of backstory. So there is a region called the Salton Sink in Southern California where a rather large region sits below sea level. Right now it contains the much smaller Salton Sea which was created by accident in the early 20th century, when some workers accidentally redirected the entire flow of the Colorado River into the region. Now its a rather stinky mess as the water slowly dries up leaving behind harmful dust, lots of dead fish, and a big political problem. However in the past the Colorado River once flowed directly into the Sink, forming a large prehistoric lake known as Lake Cahuilla. The basic premise of my timeline is what if the lake still existed today? The divergences that this lake creates affects California, the United States, and the world, making it a much different place. I already have a basic idea of what this United States and the world would look like, but I would always appreciate input from interested peoples. You may have seen other posts for this timeline on this forum, but I am in the process of updating them to the new canon. Any future installments I make to this timeline will be posted and threadmarked here.
