On the last few days of break, my boyfriend Jacob, two sisters, and I took off on a last minute road-trip to Palm Springs. It’s been on my bucket list for a while to see the clay art piece called Salvation Mountain, and I finally made it happen to finish off 2016. We hit the road with candy, snacks, Hannah Montana on high volume, and a full tank off gas.
Our first impromptu stop was the Salton Sea. We pulled off the road and walked onto the fishbone sand (and when I say fishbone sand I mean literally walking on dead, crunchy, fishbones) to see the amazing view of the mountains above the water. There was a small fog on the salty water that made it so gorgeous but the bones were just plain gross. I made the mistake of wearing sandals, and I eventually made Jacob carry me back to shore due to the gag reflex happening… but the view was so pretty and I can’t smell the dead fish looking at the pictures, so it was worth it.
Then we finally made it to the mountain, and I was very glad that I brought Jacob because lets just say the town around the mountain was not the nicest place in the world. But, still the mountain was so amazing to see and take some time to look at. It was completely sculpted and painted by one artist and it was amazing looking at the details and beauty of it.
