I've been debating whether to blog about the Slabs or not. I was only there a couple days with the WINs, so I didn't see a lot of the place. Also, there are a number of blogs out there that have documented the Slabs quite well.
One from Barbara's blog: Slabs
A few from Diana's: Trash Art Salvation Mountain A little more
I did take a picture of Salvation Mountain which is probably the most famous part of the Slabs.
The creator of Salvation Mountain, Leonard Knight, is no longer in residence. He was taken to a hospital around the time of my visit and from there to a nursing home and not expected to return. I haven't any more detail than that. I'm sorry I didn't get to meet him.
I did meet the pastor of the local church. He spoke to a group of us WINs one day in the church.
We took up a collection and bought some groceries to be distributed by the church to some of the local residents. The full-time residents are in fairly dire straits.
