Seven Magic Mountains | Places

Just a few miles from home sits these beautiful totems of brightly colored boulders in the middle of the desert. This scenic art installation is called Seven Magic Mountains by Swiss artist Ugo Rondinone and was a beautiful sight to see and experience. The mountains represent the natural and artificial, the then and now, while they stand happily in a dry desert lake bed directly in the middle of the city and mountains. I couldn't help but smile walking amongst the structures that stand at 25 to 35 feet tall! 




The installation will be around for another two years until May of 2018 where then it will be deconstructed and one tower will remain at the MGM Grand. I also happened to take some footage of the mountains which you can see on my youtube channel for a closer look. This was the perfect way to end my birthday, here's to 24!
