Rainbow Day on Salvation Mountain
A few months ago, we drove across states in America and stopped by at this amazing location called Salvation Mountain. It was built as a tribute by Leonard Knight during the 1970’s to God, and his gift to the world. We’ve passed this work of art that made out of 100,000+ gallons of paint, endless buckets of adobe clay, and each one stones me with their beauty. At the end of the day, we climbed the rocks at the top of the cross and absorbed the afternoon’s cool perfume, savoring every moment we get to stay in this heaven of a place
