Salvation Mountain trip

So this past weekend we went to the Salton Sea with some friends to go camping, and we paid a visit to Salvation Mountain, which is just past Niland in Slab City.  Here are a few photos of this incredibly dedicated ongoing art piece by Leonard Knight (age 77).  Regardless of your religious persuasion, this is a lovely and committed piece of folk art.  We were able to meet Leonard and hear him a song that he wrote a long time ago called “Flower-tree and You”.   Seth made a recording which you should give a listen to.  If you ever are feeling like a road trip to the California desert, you should definitely make a stop by Salvation Mountain and explore.
