Salvation Mountain

In the middle of the Southern California desert lies a mesmerising site.. Something that wouldn’t look out of place in a Willy Wonka film!


Salvation Mountain is the creation of Leonard Knight and encompasses many Bible verses, although it is said to have been built around the philosophy of the Sinners prayer.


  
  
  
  

I would definitely recommend climbing the “yellow brick road” to the top of the monument where you can see for miles!

Sadly Leonard passed away several years ago, so to prevent the mountain from falling into disrepair many visitors donate a can of paint. There is also a small shack where people can donate funds to the Salvation Mountain Inc charity.

I would highly recommend a stop off at this beautiful monument if you are in the area!

Speak to you soon!
