Nestled deep within the lower desert of Southern California, east of the Salton Sea, you can discover Leonard Knight’s Salvation Mountain. Leonard created his Salvation Mountain as a tribute to God. This is his way of sharing the message of “God Is Love.”
After our weekend in Palm Springs, we made the drive through the expanse of the California desert to finally visit this iconic location. Salvation mountain was created using adobe, straw, and thousands of gallons of lead-free paint. Leonard Knight spent over 30 years of his life dedicated to this project. Once inside, you are struck with the detail and dedication that went into this beautiful monument and there is a type of reverence that everyone seemed to respect.
Everywhere you turn, you are met with a message of hope and love and God’s care for his creation.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” -John 3:16 ESV
