Salvation Mountain

Leonard Knight spent roughly three decades building this colorful mound in the Sonoran Desert in California as a way to share his devotion to peace, love, and a higher power. Impressive and mystic.

There are a lot of special places in the US, this is one. Made with love and passion and a lot of colours. I saw pictures on the world wide web and i had to go, see it, picture it. Love it.

Knight’s homage to God sits at the entrance to Slab City, a 640-acre plot of concrete slabs left over from a World War II Marine base. For decades, year round squatters and seasonal snowbirds have lived here rent free on state-owned land, calling it “the last free place to live in America.” There’s no power grid, no sewer, no garbage pickup, and no building codes. Slab City was an ideal spot to construct his mountain, so he moved onto the site and spent his days building, painting and welcoming curious visitors.

Your life, your project.

Go and see. Enjoy. Respect it.

I’ve seen people not respecting this folk art, by running over not allowed areas, touching and leaving their garbage. Please respect and preserve it voor the next generations.
