Whether you’re religious or not, all travelers will appreciate the strange and unique magic that is Salvation Mountain. Arguably the ultimate in American roadside attractions meets folk art, a gigantic painted, colorful clay, adobe bricks, tires, discarded windows, and rock mountain sits in the middle of nowhere as an ode to faith. Leonard Knight was ‘called’ to start building it decades ago, and prior to his passing back in 2014, I’d actually met him, on my first visit to this strange and special place. On that particular day, I was all alone. I’d made the drive, as many do to visit Mecca. I’d hear talk of this unusual giant folk art ode, and wanted to experience it for myself. It’s been 13 years since that first visit, now. Once again, with the help of the creative minds behind Your Face is Rad and Cheriene Galley Makeup, we returned here before the location was taken over by the Salvation Mountain foundation, and made a little magic in capturing a tender editorial fashion shoot that highlights the folk handmade haphazard wonder of this mystic place.
