From Vegas To LA..with some Salvation Mountain in between

After Las Vegas, we decided to explore the Salton Sea, and very strange place indeed. In the 50’s, it boasted a popular vacation destination, but then the giant lake became polluted with argircultural run off, the salt levels became too high, and all of the fish died. Then it flooded, and all of the resorts died. Now, a smattering of people still live there, and enjoy a beautiful lake in the desert. The only problem is the stench. And the thousands of fish bones…

 And then we went to Salvation Mountain, which was featured in the book/movie Into the Wild. Indeed, it was wild. Leonard Knight, the man in the picture, has been working on this masterpiece for 20+ years. He also lives in it.

He also had the most adorable kitten I have ever seen.
