This part of our visit to Slab City was sure a colorful surprise! This 50 foot high mountain made of straw, adobe and lots and lots of paint is constructed into a hillside near the entrance to Slab City. It is amazing what can be constructed with enough time and effort. This mountain is the creation of Leonard Knight. We were able to meet Leonard while we were there, he was very friendly and passionate man who was nice enough to take the time to give us a nice tour of Salvation Mountain. For a photographer like me who is attracted to bright, bold colors, this spot was a dream! Below is a photo of Leonard while leading the tour.
