Salvation Mountain

Salvation Mountain is a colorful art installation covering much of a small hill north of Calipatria, California, near Slab City and just several miles from the Salton Sea.
It is made from adobe, straw, and thousands of gallons of paint. It was created by Leonard Knight to convey the message that "God Loves Everyone."
Friendly and accessible, Leonard welcomes visitors to Slab City and Salvation Mountain and gladly accepts donations of both labor and acrylic paint.

Update: December 7, 2011, I have learned that Leonard is not doing well health wise and will be leaving the mountain he created and loved so much.

Update: February 10, 2014, Leonard passed away in his sleep today. He may be gone, but he left the mountain he crated and the memories on the many people who visited him. Rest in Peace Leonard.
