Salvation Mountain


At the entrance to Slab City, Leonard Knight has built his monument of love, Salvation Mountain. When we arrived, he immediately invited us on a tour. He is proud of his labor and told us all about the adobe construction. It was featured in the movie Into the Wild, where the main character goes to live at Slab City for awhile. Congress has declared it a national treasure.
