Seven Magic Mountains
Last week we spent Wednesday afternoon driving to Las Vegas to catch an early flight to Chicago. We were really looking forward to it because it’s a stretch of freeway that we haven’t been on yet!
What we have learned in our (almost) 6 months here in California is that the desert is home to some amazing things! The concept of random art installations is new to me and so cool! Plus, there are a lot of cool unintentional things like the abandon waterpark that we drove past. Seriously… so cool!
I knew that we were going to have to make a pit stop at Seven Magic Mountains just south west of Las Vegas. I have a thing for color and this was on my bucket list.
A little about it…
“Internationally renowned Swiss artist Ugo Rondinone’s Seven Magic Mountains is a large-scale site-specific public art installation located near Jean Dry Lake and Interstate 15, approximately ten miles south of Las Vegas, Nevada. Comprised of seven towers of colorful, stacked boulders standing more than thirty feet high, Seven Magic Mountains is situated within the Ivanpah Valley adjacent to Sheep Mountain and the McCullough, Bird Spring, and Goodsprings ranges of mountains. A creative expression of human presence in the desert, Seven Magic Mountains punctuates the Mojave with a poetic burst of form and color. The exhibition opened May 11, 2016 and will be on view for two years.” – www.sevenmagicmountains.com

Other than Jake’s Mini Rodini sweatshirt in the first photo, both kids are wearing Spring/Summer 2017 Paper Wings. Abby’s necklace is available at Gunner and Lux. Jake was stoked that his tee shirt matched the art. How ironic is that?
