Hurricane Diane Gulf of CA 1960

The Gulf of California (Sea of Cortez) often has water temperatures in the high 80's in August.

Any one know why Diane died out in there in 1960? I would have thought that the thermal low over the Colorado river that forms in the summer would have sucked it up north.

Why didn't it continue north until it hit the northern edge of the gulf and proceed to drown Arizona and/or California?
