I was looking at a bunch of pictures on the internet one day & a picture of a place called Salvation Mountain popped up. I was thinking about how cool it looked and possibly doing a road trip to see this place in person. Gotta love the internet, because I wouldn’t have known about this spot otherwise.
This place located in Niland is called Salvation Mountain. A man named Leonard Knight created all of this! This is a special & unique place. It’s also in the middle of the desert. When I traveled here the temperature was hott! It was 105 degrees. Have your car close by because you’ll need those AC breaks.
I did a little bit of research on my own & apparently, Leonard created this monument with just adobe clay & straw, & paint that was donated.
Sadly Leonard Knight died in February 2014. However, his message still lives on with the help of volunteers.
