After visiting Salvation Mountain yesterday, I wanted to learn more about it and its creator, Leonard Knight.
Here are some of YouTube videos I watched…
The first 13:30 of this 2006 video is a tour from Knight. The remaining 35 minutes gives more information on Knight, his motivation, and the creation of Salvation Mountain. Much of the tour is also shown in the last 30 minutes, so I started the following video there.
In this video Knight talks about the construction and history of Salvation Mountain, along with his religious philosophy. (c. 2008)
Knight relocated to Eldorado Care Center in December 2011 after his health deteriorated. This January 2012 video talks about the preservation of Salvation Mountain.
Knight died in February 2014. This video documents one of his last visits to Salvation Mountain in 2013.
