The most well-known desert in the USA is the Mojave Desert in California.
Red Rock Canyon in Clark County, Nevada, is plainly seen from the Las Vegas Strip and is located about 15 miles west of Las Vegas (pickup begins at 7 AM). The Keystone Thrust, a collection of sandstone peaks and walls, as well as a number of significant red rock formations, may be seen in the conservation area. Due to their height of up to 3,000 feet, the walls are a well-liked location for rock climbing and trekking. La Madre Mountain, which has a height of 8,154 feet, is the park’s highest peak. State Route 159 passes through a valley that has no name but is frequently frequented; it is sometimes, though incorrectly, called Red Rock Canyon. From SR 159, one may observe a gigantic rock face known as the Wilson Cliffs or Keystone Thrust.
Seven Magic Mountains, a sizable site-specific public art piece by the well-known Swiss artist Ugo Rondinone, is situated about 10 miles south of Las Vegas, Nevada, between Jean Dry Lake and Interstate 15. Seven Magic Mountains, which are made up of seven towers of brightly colored, stacked stones that stand more than 30 feet tall, are a creative representation of human presence in the desert. They interrupt the Mojave with a poetic explosion of form and color.
The Nevada Museum of Art and the Art Production Fund collaborated to create Seven Magic Mountains. The show was originally intended to remain on display for two years and began on May 11, 2016. Artist Ugo Rondinone has expressed a strong desire to keep the artwork on display at its current location due to the incredible success of the piece since its debut.
Explore the vistas of Red Rock and the Mojave desert from Blue Diamond Road, which features picturesque buttes, cliffs, and rock formations. Visit the seven painted boulder totems that make up the art piece known as Seven Magic Mountains.
The Nevada Museum of Art in Reno and the Art Production Fund in New York are the producers of Seven Magic Mountains. The installation site is a short distance from Jean Dry Lake, where Michael Heizer and Jean Tinquely produced renowned land art pieces in the 1960s. Jean Dry Lake is located about 10 miles south of the intersection of Las Vegas Boulevard and St. Rose Parkway in Henderson. A beautiful monument that makes for incredible photos!
