Charley has set up a nice little entertainment area. Note the records which make up the ceiling of his living area.
Our next stop was Salvation Mountain. Lennard has been working on the project for 30 years. He lives off donations and at 87 has many guardian angles looking after him. Apparently there was a very bad element invading the slabs and they robbed Lennard on several occasions. "Residential law" aka known as guns, have eliminated the bad elements and Lennard is now carefully watched over by members of the community.
You can't miss Salvation Mountain on the way into the slabs
Thousands and thousands of gallons of donated paint have been used.
Lennard is very enthusiastic about his Salvation Mountain and memorial to Jesus and God. He states he planned to only stay for a few days when he first came to the slabs, but his project has kept him here for over 30 years. In 2001 Salvation Mountain was designated as a Folk Art Treasure.
National Geographic featured Salvation Mountain on their TV series and they later sent Lennard a picture they took of the mountain and he has mounted it on one of the interior walls.
There is still is more on the slabs. Stay tuned.
