The 105 degree heat only made this experience more magical. I've wanted to see this place for years, you can physically feel the amount of love that was poured in. Volunteers continue to keep it fresh and visitors donate paint. If you're ever driving around Southern California, make the trip to see Salvation Mountain.
This is a deceiving post... my favorite color is not orange. Last ride at Badger Creek Ranch today. I will miss this place: the scenery, the horses, the people. I will miss more than those things I've listed, I will miss my Rocky Mountain home. Thanks for a remarkable season. On to Laramie River Ranch for a couple weeks. I love being a cowgirl in this state. 💛
Painted Wall is the highest cliff in Colorado. The patterns throughout the wall were created more than a billion years ago. Molten lava squeezed its way into fissures and cracks to create the beautiful designs you see. Amazing.
