salvation mountain

earlier this week we spent a few days in palm desert with my mom celebrating my birthday. and since we were in the general area of salvation mountain i decided that we had to go. i've been wanting to go there for years. the first time i heard of it was from the tv show, California's Gold (you can view the episode here). after that i was pretty determined to get there. 
ruben and i got up early and ended up going alone on friday morning. and i'm glad to report that it was just as awesome as i thought it would be. i highly recommend making the trip and if you want good lighting for pictures i'd suggest going at sunset not in the morning like we did.
