Like a Prayer

Just outside of Calipatria, California, a technicolor vision arises from the desert sands.
But this vision ain't no mirage. It's Salvation Mountain, a man-made mountain/ art installation that has been spreading it's colorful message for nearly three decades.
Salvation Mountain is the work of one man, Leonard Knight, and over 100,000 gallons of paint.
Knight has devoted himself to covering his structure with biblical messages of peace and love. Why? Because, he says, he loves Jesus.

Funny what love'll make a guy do, huh?
