Salvation Mountain, Leonard Knight

Posted by Picasa

I went out to meet Leonard Knight at Salvation Mountain near the Salton Sea yesterday...He's quite a character.Leonard Knight painted a mountain, yes that's right he painted a mountain. It's called Salvation Mountain, it's located in Imperial County just east of the Salton Sea about a hour and a half from Palm Springs. Salvation Mountain is Leonard's tribute to God and his gift to the world with its simple yet powerful message: "God Is Love." Salvation Mountain must be seen to be fully appreciated.Its 50 foot height and 150 foot breadth is made totally of local adobe clay and donated paint and is truly unique in the United States and probably the world. From its Sea of Galilee at the bottom, to the big red heart in the middle, to the cross at the very top, the reoccurring theme of "Love" is everywhere at Salvation Mountain I made a short slideshow here
