Salvation Mountain

Jim says:

Salvation Mountain is located at Slab City, U.S.A. deep in the desert of southeastern California. Leonard Knight (age 79) is the creator and builder of Salvation Mountain which helps make Slab City a most unusual place. His Salvation Mountain has been featured in magazines and television documentaries from all over the world.


Here are two links to acquaint you with Salvation Mountain…

Here are two YouTube videos with Leonard Knight…

In this second video Leonard is the slender fellow, clean-shaven with the light-colored cowboy hat…What a hoot!

I stopped by to visit with Leonard upon my arrival at Slab City two days ago and caught him in his noon-time siesta. I didn’t disturb him…


Leonard Knight tells his life story in this Wikipedia link…

When I departed Slab City yesterday morning at 8:30 AM, I stopped to see Leonard but he wasn’t there. Probably gone for breakfast in Niland.

In other news…
I closed out my Panama or Bust website a couple of months ago. So I stopped at Hi-Tech signs in Brawley, California and had the signs on my Bronco changed to reflect the change on where folks can order my books.

Here’s the before sign…


Here’s the after sign…


Then a stop at Costco for gas and food supplies in El Centro, California. I then decided to travel on to Yuma, Arizona. More later…

    Hi Jim — Just wondering if you found Jesus at Salvation Mountain.
    In other news… I see on TV weather reports heavy rains on west coast. Hope you are high and dry. I hope we don’t see you on the Weather Channel, floating down a river in your RV.

  2. We fell in love with Slab City and even tho we currently enjoy the finer things in life we can appreciate what Slab City offers and represents.
