whole lot of pictures in this post. today lisa and i went to salvation mountain in niland, ca (the pictures are a combination of her camera and mine). it was so nice to get out of redlands and do a mini road trip somewhere we haven't been before and actually DO something.
"Salvation Mountain is Leonard's tribute to God and his gift to the world with its simple yet powerful message: "God Is Love." Leonard's passion has lovingly created this brilliant "outsider art " masterpiece resplendent with not only biblical and religious scripture such as the Lord's Prayer, John 3:16, and the Sinner's Prayer, but also including flowers, trees, waterfalls, suns, bluebirds, and many other fascinating and colorful objects."
leonard actually lives on the site in a couple of makeshift trailers. he's a really sweet little old man (who's a little hard of hearing...) and gave us a tour, dvd, and postcards. totally recommend everyone to go here and experience it for yourselves.
