That One Time We Found Salvation In The Desert

Have you all heard Kesha’s new song “Praying?” Are you as obsessed with it as I am??

If you haven’t seen the music video, it takes place in this really bizarre colorful place.

If you’re wondering where in the world it’s located, there is a place in the middle of the desert in Southern California called Salvation Mountain.

My friends and I have wanted to visit Salvation Mountain for a long time because its so COOL and only a few hours from Los Angeles!

Basically, if you hit Palm Springs and just keeeeeeep going until you feel like you are lost in the middle of no where you will be in the right place!

Salvation Mountain is actually a huge art piece made about 30 years ago by a man named Leonard Knight.

The mountain has become a really popular place for SoCal people to go for photo shoots because it’s so unique.

But, if you are lucky enough to meet some of the locals, you can get a lot more out of your trip. We met a man while we were there whose entire job was to keep the paint fresh on the mountain.
