Love is Universal

Leonard Knight, creator of Salvation Mountain, was moved to a full time care facility last week due to declining health. He is 80 years old. His caretaker, who has been watching over the site for the past year or so, also died last week. The fate of the unauthorized monument, which by Leonard’s estimates contains 100,000 gallons of donated paint, is uncertain.
I had the good fortune of meeting Leonard several times. He is an incredibly friendly, giving person who always enthusiastically welcomed visitors.
