Just stuff

Salvation Mountain Salvation Mountain is actually an amazing labor of love created out in the California Desert. Folk art visionary Leonard Knight decided he needed to express his religious feelings in a big way. He has painted this small mountain (in a place called "Slab City") outside the town of Niland, California, which is located near the Salton Sea.

Grotto of the Redemption The Grotto is a composite of nine separate Grottos, each portraying a scene in the life of Christ.The Grotto includes the largest collection of precious stones and gems found anywhere in one location. The artistry has to be seen to be appreciated, plus the message it gives is beyond words.
