A roadside attraction outside of Las Vegas has been drawing Instagrammers, motorists and art lovers alike. Known as the Seven Magic Mountains, this art installation is a unique desert expression that brings color to the dry desert area. Stacked, towering boulders painted in neon colors can be seen from Highway 15, but the best way to view the Seven Mountain Magic is to stop and explore the area the next time you’re traveling from Los Angeles to Los Vegas.

Las Vegas is known for its bright lights and busy atmosphere. However just outside of Las Vegas is an inhabitable desert. The artist of the Seven Magic Mountains, Ugo Rondinone, created this work of art in the perfect location. This spot is a midway point between the desert wasteland and the human presence on this arid landscape. The Seven Magic Mountains tend to blend the two ideals, nature and artificial influences, into two.
