  • Salvation Mountain, a roadside folk-art Mecca, is a sight to behold. Despite the fact that almost every inch of its seussian topography it is scrawled with incoherent religious psychobabble, it's still not enough to prepare many of the tourists for their hasty "we're not stopping here" jaunt through Slab City -America's most romanticized 3rd world shanty town- just down the road. It's a common misconception that there are no laws here; there is simply an infrequent enforcement of laws by actual police officers. You're much more likely to run afoul of of the residents, if you're even brave enough to part ways with your Toyota FJ cruiser and waddle into the the local library to make an ass of yourself. I spent the night here on the outskirts of the slabs, but I restricted my photography to the closest thing the city has to a visitor's center: East Jesus. After all, this is a community full of people, not a zoo. I look forward to returning when I have the time to know it better. #thatsfreerealestate #vanlife #slabcity #rubbertramp #desertrun #eastjesus #offgrid #vandweller #nomad #goexplore #travelblog
