A Colorful Message in the Desert

Salvation Mountain

November 3, 2011

I had heard of Salvation Mountain, and seen a few photographs of it. So, when I knew that I would be in the area near the end of October, I decided to check it out. Although I was not there during the best light, I enjoyed exploring and photographing the area.

The Mountain is the creation of Leonard Knight. Leonard lives off the grid in the "Cabin RV." He has no phone, no heating, no air conditioning, and no running water. What he does have is happiness, hospitality and a big smile. I look forward to seeing him again another day.
