Slab City and Salvation Mountain in Niland Ca.
I recently shot this video of Salvation Mountain, entrance to Slab City.

This place use to be a WWII Marine Desert Training Base Camp Dunlap, It was abandoned and forgotten after the war by the late 50's...They call it Slab City because of the left over slab concrete foundations from the US Training camp.

By the mid 60's, some people that had no place to live started homesteading the land with no rights to it, most live there year around. There must be hundreds of shacks, trailers and camping tents...

This place has manifested into a small community. The people have used the surrounding waste dumping to create Folk Art and is visited by the hundreds through out the week.

Salvation Mountain was created by Leonard Knight almost thirty years ago, claims he was saved and had a mission to deliver..

We had the opportunity to go out and film it, and the people love it...

I hope you like the video as much as we were intrigued being there.
