Salvation Mountain

(Wearing: Crossroads romper, H&M sandals, F21 hat and Topshop headband, Rebecca Minkoff bag)

I finally got to check off Salvation Mountain off my bucket list! This past Saturday we drove off to the desert and what can I say, I fell in love with this groovy place. I was in awe of all the hard work and dedication put into this by Leonard  Knight, who was the creator of Salvation Mountain. He began painting the mountain in the 1970's and it eventually became an art exhibit and tourist spot. He unfortunately passed away last week, RIP Leonard. His beautiful folk art definitely left me speechless and inspired.
 If you ever get a chance to visit ...go! Plus it's free! Donations and paint are also accepted.
It's definitely something you don't see everyday ;)

I've always wanted to visit here! I live in Southern California, but every road trip I've taken deviates just slightly's in an inconvenient place!
