So out about 80 miles past Palm Desert lies a magical little place called Salvation Mountain. Ever since I saw pictures of it years ago, I’ve always wanted to go here but never had the time to check it out. It’s located in “Slab City” which is a free RV oasis for squatters. I was curious to see the man made mountain painted rubbish and hopefully understand why so many people hype about going to visit.

It truly is a sight to see. The caves and inner workings of the mountain make it one remarkable piece of art, one that is for kids and adults. It’s painted and adorned with Bible verses, murals and more. Local artist Leonard Knight, created this mountain in 2000 out of adobe, straw and gallons of liters of paint. Truly a sight to see, I took a day with my sister to cruise around the area, walk barefoot and check it out. Surprisingly it was a nice day (for January in the desert) so this Rat & Boa sheer skirt with a holey top from Urban did the trick. Wore a swimsuit under the skirt, skirts kinda risqué otherwise. 😉
