  • For thirty years Leonard Knight (age 80) has been building at a site that has come to be known as Salvation Mountain. He has no belongings and he lives in the back of a pickup truck. He builds, he eats, he gives tours, he bathes, and he sleeps. Nothing more. He lives the simple life of a visionary.

    His sole purpose in this endeavor is to spread the word that GOD IS LOVE.
