Slab City and Salvation Mountain, Niland, CA

Today Beth, Jean, and I decided to check out Slab City and Salvation Mountain, out near the Salton Sea by Niland, CA. Here are just a few of my pictures from Salvation Mountain as well as some of Jean's. Tomorrow I'll post lots of pictures from wanderings around Slab City itself. I love this place. ... 8cec5d6d4f

Again, you don't need to be a member of Facebook to check out the pictures.

Today we've seen two opposite ways of life out here in the desert: Slab City, which is boondocking at its most interesting and creative, and the Fountain of Youth RV Resort several miles down the road, with its approx. 850-1000 full hookup sites, restaurant, grocery store, six spas, pool, etc., and at least a full single-spaced page of daily activities. I visited with friends Pete and Rebecca, my neighbors and work buddies at Amazon in Coffeyville, Kansas this year. But, I guess I'm kind of weird. I much prefer Slab City.

Dinner in Jean's trailer tonight was so much fun!!! Interesting and funny stories - I cracked up. :lol: :lol:

We circled the wagons. I'm in red by myr rig. Jean is what she calls the purple blob.

Then we walked over to Salvation Mountain

Leonard, the builder, took us on a tour. This is inside the mountain.

You climb the yellow brick road to the top of the mountain.

It got pretty steep at the top
