On our way home from Glamis we took a detour. We headed down hwy 111, towards Niland, California, to a place called Salvation Mountain.
Into the wild. I have seen the movie and read the book so it was pretty cool to see this up close.
This Mountain was hand build out of tires, hay, sticks and basically any other scraps that could be found by a now 90 year old man named Leonard Knight. It has a pretty simple message. God is love. People have been so touched by what he was doing that they donate money and materials and some art students will come donate their time. They help him touch up the paint and keep it fresh looking. We actually got to meet Leonard and he was so excited to show us what he had done and tell us how he did it. What a neat way to be remembered after you are gone. That all you wanted to do was spread a simple (and in my opinion true) message.God is Love.
