During our California roadtrip we couldn’t miss visiting Salvation Mountain: an art installation that covers an entire hill of the Colorado desert.
The artist who created it, Leonard Knight (who died last February) spent the last 40 years of his life to enlarge and paint his artificial mountain, sharing a love message and showing the tourists around.
A magnificent place that is definitely worth a visit.

Durante il nostro roadtrip in California una delle tappe che non potevo perdermi era Salvation Mountain: un’installazione d’arte che ricopre un’intera collina del deserto del Colorado.
L’artista che l’ha creata, Leonard Knight (morto lo scorso Febbraio), ha impiegato gli ultimi 40 anni della sua vita a perfezionare ed ingrandire la sua “montagna artificiale”, condividendo un messaggio d’amore e accogliendo i turisti in prima persona.
Un posto spettacolare che merita sicuramente una visita se siete nella zona.

    Chiara i tuoi outfits sono sempre stupendi, ma sei troppo magra! Ti preferivo agli esordi, con qualche chilo in più

    This looks like a monumental work of art that took a lot of years to paint under the scorching sun. As for your romper, I don’t like the knitted ornaments hanging from the shorts, they are not to my taste. Picture two below the text I like the most not just because of the sign above your head, but also because of the way you have exposed your very long legs – our eyes travel from the knitted ornaments down to the wedges and then again upwards in an unforgetable journey.

    come al solito vado in controtendenza e mi candido ad essere censurata.
    questo posto è il frutto della pazzia religiosa di un poveretto, epigono dell’architetto Hundertwasser e dell’architetto Gaudì, ha copiato male la loro lezione e non capisco tutta questa ammirazione. oltretutto non mi risulta tu sia una persona religiosa, da come vivi: per cui tutto questo è straniante. Bah!
