Salvation Mountain stands 150 feet wide and 50 feet tall, created by Leonard Knight with the intent to spread God’s love. The mound is built of a selection of oddities and decorated quite colorfully, with an estimated 100,000 gallons of paint contributing to its maintenance over the years.
The Devils Postpile National Monument is a surprising creation of nature, consisting of more than 400 basalt columns that reach up to 600 feet high. This natural monument is located on the east of the sierras near Mammoth, and has been created due to the slow cooling of molten lava coming into contact with a moving glacier.
Forestiere Underground Gardens is an underground dwelling place built by Baldassare Forestiere over 40 years. The space is the size of a mansion, modeled after catacombs and filled with passageways and tunnels. What truly makes this place exceptional, though, are the gardens Forestiere planted underground, filled with oranges, lemons, grapefruits, kumquats, strawberries, dates and more. You can visit on days when it isn’t raining and take a tour for $15.
