Slab City

Slab City is just up the road from Salvation Mtn. It was originally built by the Army to use as a base but was never used. It is now inhabited by
trailers and motorhomes from Thunderdome I believe.

Here is another Mad Max vehicle at Slab City. We did see a license plate from Sheridan, WY. I think it was good for me to see this....I am much more thankful for what I have.
How would you like to sit a spell in this easy chair? All I could say was WOW!

This is inside one of the rooms. Oh yeah, this has been declared a national folk art treasure.

Here is Leonard Knight, the man that is responsible for this by turning his life over to God. He is holding the plague that Barbara Boxer gave him declaring this a protected site.

We have been to the Mountain!

This is a work in progess, but it is all done with donated paint and volunteers.
This is the main attraction....the salvation mountain. It has taken 50 years to get all this done.

We were told that we had to go see it so we did. Just turn at this sign.

Cabbage Patch

We are still amazed to see these fields in Yuma. Looks like these cabbages are ready to be picked. It was in the upper 70's today and supposed to be in the 80's for the next few days. We will be headed to the pool again. Went to Mexico yesterday. Living the dream!

Yuma, AZ Where the sun spends the winter!

Here is Alan bringing 6 heads of free iceberg lettuce home. We shared with our new Canadian friends, Barry & Ken. It was so good in the salad we had.

These fields are beautiful. We watched them harvest fennel and lettuce. They gave us some fresh cauliflower, too. We saw all kinds of spinach, celery, and red & green leaf lettuce. It is like a huge garden. The cauliflower was delicious raw & cooked with cheese sauce.
