We stumbled upon Salvation Mountain on our last day in California. If you've ever seen or read Into The Wild, you'll be familiar with the time Christopher McCandless spent here and at The Slabs. It's just East of the Salton Sea (which is another interesting place) and a little South of Coachella. The next time you're in Southern California, make the effort to take a day trip out to see the offbeat charm of Salvation Mountain. It was totally inspiring, and we're still processing the experience.
