Leonard died a few years back, but as I am going through old photos, I couldn’t resist posting this shot of Leonard Knight – Salvation Mountain creator.

Salvation Mountain

I spent quite a bit of time here back in ’09/’10. It was about a 2 hour drive from home. There was something about this place that kept me coming back. I was not working at the time, and it was a place I could go to pray, and get away from real life. I met Leonard Knight, the creator, and he was a nice guy. He said, “God never fails.” So much was on my shoulders at the time, It really helped me.
