Hello from Palm Desert! Each time we visit, I always hope we will make the trip to Salvation Mountain alongside The Salton Sea. But it's a bit of a drive beyond Palm Desert and so we get busy swimming and playing and time rushes by without a visit to this great American folk art installation. But a visit was my Mother's Day wish and so we drove toward a remote area in the desert called Slab City. Though you can't see in these photos, there was a fairly aggressive sand storm barreling down on us. Ivy and Goo wanted nothing to do with these elements so they appeased me for a photo for less than 10 minutes. But Savannah was in awe and carried a deep appreciation for artistry of Leonard Knight. The colors against the neutral backdrop of the desert vibrate the mountains message of God and Love.
