After seeing many photos from my local Las Vegas Instagram friends hanging out at a display of colorful and huge rocks, I was curious as to what and where this place was all about.
Seven Magic Mountains, a large scale desert artwork that just so happens to be a 15 minute drive from my home! After an afternoon workout, me and the family headed outside of Las Vegas to see the art for ourselves!
