Welcome to Salvation Mountain.
It’s an exuberant patchwork quilt of paint and hope. Leonard Knight, the artist responsible for this unusual attraction, originally tried to spread love via hot air balloon. When that didn’t work, he built a mountain out of junk and concrete. That mountain collapsed, so he built the current one out of adobe and clay. Knight passed away in 2014, but his legacy is carried on by devotees of his message of peace and harmony and they’ve established a 501(c)3 to continue his work.
