"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime"-MARK TWAIN

Salvation Mountain.


Two posts today. trying to catch up.

Located just as one enters Slab City, near Niland, California; you will pass Salvation Mountain.  Not much I can say that the pictures don’t cover.  Just read this story of the how and why, then look at the pictures.  Straight from my little point and shoot.  No manipulation.  You can find much more information on how he built the mountain on Google or Wikipedia.
