Salvation Mountain

Desert Road Trip Part 4 of 4:
Salvation Mountain

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.

I dug up this old photo from 2010 with Leonard Knight before he passed away in 2014.
