Seven Magic Mountains | Nevada Desert

Seven magic mountains is a large art installation in the Nevada desert; 10 miles outside of Las Vegas. The huge rock formations are over thirty foot high and made of a variety of different coloured boulders. These rock formations can be seen from the road and look small until you are standing next to them. Although they appear small they stand out in a sense that they are the only colour around for miles. 
Getting there

From Las Vegas: Drive approximately 7 miles south on Las Vegas Blvd. The artwork will appear on your left.

From Los Angeles: Drive north on I-15 to Jean, Nevada (Exit 12). Turn right on NV-161 towardsLas Vegas Blvd. Drive approximately 5 miles north along Las Vegas Blvd and the artwork will appear on your right.
What you need to know

There are no facilities such as restrooms at the artwork sight. The closest available are at Jean 5 miles away or to drive into Las Vegas. 
There is a parking lot with plenty of space for everyone, so avoid parking on the road. 
Use the unpaved walking path to walk to the sculptures. This runs from the parking lot. 
While visiting the artwork sight be mindful of your surroundings as there are sensitive flora and animals such as the endangered desert tortoise. 
Last but not least watch out for snakes.

Top tips for your visit

Bring plenty of refreshments as it can get very hot in the middle of the desert and the only shade you'll be able to find it from the rock formations. (This could be hard when your in the way of someones shoot)

Have a camera or phone with plenty of memory. You'r going to want to take a lot of photos as this art installation looks good from every angle with all of the different colours, shapes and sizes. (I took so many it was hard choosing which ones to show you)
I had the best visit and I was very lucky with the weather that day. If you're able to get car hire then we defiantly recommend the drive just outside of Vegas to see these.

I really hope you consider visiting, you defiantly won't regret it. Make sure you tag me on Instagram so I can see your great photos.
