It's a drive from any major cities, but it was amazing. if you're looking for off the beaten path thing to do, this is it!

THere's nothing much that ill add, but seriously, you have to go.

Once you get there, you can park near the mountain, and i spent about 2 hours here because i really looked at everything and sat and talked to other people. it was wonderful!

All walks of people from bikers to hippies and devote Christians, families, couples and everyday travelers from Los Angeles, San Diego, Arizona and more were there on the Sunday I was.

The "mountain" is plastered, painted and carved into a big master piece dedicated to remind all of the Love God has for his children.

Alongside the Mountain there is a cave with plastered trees, painted all bright colors, it looks almost like a jungle gym of love!
