Salvation Mountain

Salvation Mountain is an art installation covering a hill near Slab City, California and just several miles from the Salton Sea. It is made from adobe, straw, and thousands of gallons of paint. It was created by local resident Leonard Knight, and encompasses numerous murals and areas painted with Christian sayings and Bible verses.

It is one of the coolest, and most bizarre, works of art I have ever seen. It was in the middle of nowhere and took a very eerie drive to get there. It was not on the way to anything else we were planning, but I’m so glad we took the time to check it out! It was such a cool experience to be there. I tried to capture the feeling, but if you are ever in the area, I would definitely visit the work of art because I know my photographs can’t do it justice!
