There is something so simple about the desert, as everything is reduced to the bare essentials of surviving in extreme conditions; the need for water and shelter to sustain life.
Slab city was originally a World War II Marine barracks. Now it is one of the only places in the United States that is free land were you don’t have to pay rent… A hint of freedom in a world of demand.
Located next to Slab City is Salvation Mountain. Over the past 30 years, Leonard Knight has been making this installation in one of the most arid and deserted places in America. For the passion of love.
