This was a great mini-APpventure. It's just 10 miles from south of Las Vegas. According to the artist its considered 'a creative expression of human existence in the desert'.
All the years we have driven to Las Vegas, we have always wanted to stop here. Well, we finally found some time. Unfortunately, they were restoring the rocks with fresh paint for several days, and our visit happened to coincide with this. So as you can see some of the stone rocks had tarps around them, in addition there were orange construction barriers around the 7 Mountain's.
Even still it was a great visit. Seeing the vast Nevada desert beyond the rocks was simply breathtaking. The image of these colorful rocks juxtaposed against the desert skyline is art in itself.
The original intent of the work in 2016 of the work was to be on display for ONLY two years. But because of the popularity of the exhibit, it has been extended until the end of 2021. Who know if it will be extended again. So, if you are interested in visiting this location you have approximately one year... unless it gets extended again.
Philip and Andrew enjoys taking excursions on every APpventure to help them expand their knowledge of people's culture, food and traditions. The blogs that you will see here will help paint and illustrate some of our most exciting Land tours.
