Slab City, CA– Just east of the Salton Sea and an hour and a half from Palm Springs, Salvation Mountain rises out of the desert tundra. An explosion of color, a vibrant declaration interrupts the tan desert expanse of Slab City.

Salvation Mountain’s summit is over 50 feet high, it’s base, 150 feet wide and was crafted over decades. An amalgamation of straw, clay, over 100,000 gallons of donated paint along with the sweat and dedication of Leonard Knight- the landmark has been declared “a folk art site worthy of preservation and protection” by the Folk Art Society of America.
