Saturday was the opening weekend for the Seven Magic Mountains. They're created by the Swiss artist, Ugo Rondinone. It's a two year art installation in the middle of the Vegas desert. According to Rondinone, the location is physically and symbolically mid-way between the natural and the artificial the natural is expressed by the mountain ranges, desert, and Jean Dry Lake backdrop, and the artificial is expressed by the highway and the constant flow of traffic between Los Angeles and Las Vegas.
I was extremely excited to see these in person, and was even more impressed when we actually got there. The boulders are over 35 feet high! The Seven Magic Mountains are just 15 minutes away from our home on Las Vegas Boulevard heading towards Los Angeles. If you're driving to Vegas from California, this is a must see!
