The Church of the Airstream Gods

brb.... I'm off the grid and hitching a ride here. 

Salvation Mountain Airstream

Ok, not fully. That's one of the airstream trailers at Salvation Mountain. 

About an hour and a half from Joshua Tree, Salvation Mountain sits on the south end of the Salton Sea - hyped in the 1950s as the French Riviera of the American West, the Salton Sea is a present-day resort ghost town where the water content is so salty it can’t sustain life. The rainbow-colored Salvation Mountain, built with local adobe clay and painted with donated house paint, is a favorite destination for magazine editorial photo shoots, music videos, fashion-loving bloggers, and Instagram stars. (More on that in my book, btw!) 

I visited Salvation Mountain this weekend and will be continuing along this road trip (it's including stops in Santa Barbara, Laurel Canyon (LA), Venice, and Joshua Tree) before heading back to Nashville for Bonnaroo this coming weekend. 

I promise to get caught up here when I return!

In the meantime, follow along on Instagram to see the sites on my stories as they happen!

Wanderfully yours,

Andi
