Let’s Always Be Adventurers
A couple of weeks ago, Evan and I journeyed out to the ends of the world (or so it seemed) to discover a magical place that we won’t soon forget. Salvation Mountain. Look it up. It.is.a.trip!! It’s not a secret that there is religious overtones, the messaging is blatant. We’re not at all religious, but nevertheless, we were fascinated by all of the bible verses and “repent! repent!” talk throughout. It definitely made us think. Mostly, we were just mesmerized by the amazing and psychodelic man-made mountain that stood before us. You can read more about it here, but it’s made completely of local adobe clay and donated paint. It’s a sight to see, my friends. It took a little longer than the advertised 1 1/2 hours from Palm Springs (more like 2), but it was worth every mile. And best of all, I saw this extraordinary place with a pretty extraordinary guy.We packed a picnic and ate our lunch above the giant “Love”… that was my favorite part. I love that Evan and I are always down for an adventure. I hope we never lose that.
Salvation Mountain is a perfect little day trip from LA, but if you happen to already be in any of the desert towns…GO! You won’t regret it.
