Seven Magic Mountains Overview
The colorful rock display was supposed to be around from 2016-2018 but the display was extended for another 3 years.
Ugo Rondinone, a renowned Swiss artist known for his colorful and large-scale displays, is the developer behind this exhibition located in the desert outside of Las Vegas, Nevada, featuring seven thirty to thirty-five-foot high dayglow totems comprised of painted, locally-sourced boulders with Jean Dry Lake as the backdrop.

Seven Magic Mountains
I am an outdoor enthusiast who would rather be on a backcountry backpacking trip than a stroll on the beach (although I do love the beach!).
Living in Las Vegas has afforded me the opportunity to easily explore the Southwest region of the United States.
A nature lover, I am often found at the end of the pack taking photos and videos of the wildlife found on the trails. Colorful flowers, desert animals, and unusual geological rock formations are often the majority of my photos.
