Salvation Mountain

  • Salvation Mountain
  • Leonard Knight decided to build a monument to God on a desert ridge. Carving and molding the surface, using thousands of gallons of donated paint, he covered hundreds of metres of the ridge with evangelical messages and decorations."

    "God Is Love" flourished amidst fields of flowers and cascading waterfalls. After three years work the mountain collapsed but instead of quitting, Knight learned from his mistakes, switched from using heavy concrete to lighter adobe to shape the mountain, and started over again."

    Leonardst's home is his trailer, richly decorated in his distinctive style and emblazoned with messages of love. Leonard Knight has lived and worked out in this desert for almost 30 years – JESUS!!!
