Conveniently located off PCH by Artesia, the little indoor play gym is a life saver for me on rainy days or when I have some work to do.

An amazing piece of art was birthed by one man’s passion for God. Leonard Knight in 1996 started with cement and his faith decided to build something. Days and weeks passed and this small something turned into a huge monument of art professing the truths in scripture.
On route to Arizona, we passed the monument which is now called “Salvation Mountain”, a color-filled mountain blazing the words that fueled Leonard’s passion for God’s love. A cross stood at the top of the mountain with the words in caps, “God is Love, Jesus I’m a sinner please come upon my body and into my heart.” Bible scriptures covered caves, walls, abandoned trailers, boats and tires in all sorts of artsy ways. This place is an inspiration! My son completely loved climbing all the way up to the cross, running through the tunnels and exploring this mountain of colors.
