It was nearing the end of our desert road trip, and we wanted to see Font’s Point and Salvation Mountain. We decided to skip Font’s Point because you need a 4 wheel drive to drive in or you had to hike 8 miles. We were pretty sore from ATVing so we opted to drive to Salvation Mountain in time to see it at sunset. Salvation Mountain is a great work of art by the late Leonard Knight. The artwork is made from adobe, straw, and thousands of gallons of lead-free paint. It’s quite a beautiful site, vibrant and colorful against the desert landscape. It was the perfect way to end our desert road trip.
