A lot can happen to a bloke out in the desert. And after a while, with enough sunshine, moonshine and time to think a man begins to see things and maybe even talk to himself a little bit. Or when that gets boring he just decides to dedicate his entire existence to building a giant monument to Jesus out of concrete and tonnes and tonnes of paint. Salvation Mountain is one such manifestation and is the creation of a lovely old bloke named Leonard Knight (now ‘with‘ Jesus) and is now considered a monument of California. Anyway – I stopped in to ask for the way back to the highway but when the locals answered “Jesus”, I consulted Google and got the hell outta there.
