|Salvation Mountain - the passion and life project of Leonard Knight|
the creative spirit is an amazing thing. resilient. unstoppable. i’m not going to share the details about slab city itself. you can google that if you’re interested. my focus here is how you can put people out in the middle of the desert with hardly any belongings and – voila – creativity springs forth! in a big way!
|Entrance to the cave and all kinds of rooms|
|30 years and 100,000 gallons of donated paint|
|Sadly, Leonard is now in a nursing home with dementia. Volunteers maintain the site.|
we had been here once years ago. i think we just took a look at salvation mountain (which was much smaller then) and moved on. we missed the very best part of all – the east jesus (no idea where the name comes from!) sculpture garden. so much there that i’m saving that for the next post.
|The church of broken toys - so amazing!|
|Like I said.... from just about anything!|
