Salvation Mountain

This is a folk art installation in Niland, CA.  Leonard Knight created this incredible installation using adobe clay mixed with straw to hold it all together.  He reinforces the clay with coats of paint and estimates that there are over 100,000 gallons of paint on the mountain!  Read about this very interesting artist and his artwork or see more incredible photos here.

 Found these incredible photos on Earth Age blog.
