Salvation Mountain – Desert Views Road Trip Part 2

Postby stillrobertpaulsen » Wed Jun 13, 2018 1:46 pm

Leonard Knight must have been very impressed when he saw a hot air balloon fly near his home in Vermont in 1971. When he later moved to Nebraska, he built his own balloon with the words, “God is Love” but never got it to fly. Finally in 1984, Leonard moved to a remote desert town in California called Niland and decided this would be the place to build his testimonial to God.

Fantastic! Was there in 1999 with my Kook friends: Greg Bishop (and the other Excluded Middle mag crew) as well as Adam Gorightly, Robert Sterling and others!

I kept waiting for a bottle of Dr. Bronner's soap to show up in some dark cornice!
