Salvation Mountain

We ventured forth to Salvation Mountain, just East of Niland, California off Hwy 111. Prior photo shoots and write ups on the mystical site had definitely piqued our interest. It seemed to be a probably interesting excursion. Well, actually it was more interesting than I had expected. Yes, there are the vivid colors and contours and biblical expressions. But, there were small rooms, I had never seen before as well as I got a real sense of the construction process. It made it all the more fascinating to glimpse the behind the scenes process and those that struggle to maintain the landmark.

Leonard Knight, the original visionary for the site, started the monument to salvation, redemption, something bigger than himself in 1985. He passed on in 2014 and it appears others are attempting to maintain the adobe/paint of the site. A cult following of sorts defends the site for the biblical concepts and for Knight’s individualism, his determination, his living in a remote area, his guru aura, his kindness. Regardless of why people come, it is a cool site and truly worth a visit. Look beyond your biases here. Many notable people have visited this site, realizing the spiritual intent and inner beauty. Now for some more images.

Mundane Beauty

Some consider a photo taken of a sunset or sunrise cliche, overdone. To me, beyond there ever changing image, is something deeper, even primitive at times. Cliches are indeed over done because of their inherent beauty. Such beauty probably seems to mundane for the more earnest amongst us.

“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher a storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.” Rabindranath Tagore
