The Rainbow Totems of Vegas – Seven Magic Mountains

Rainbow Totems in the Desert

Approximately, ten miles South of the Las Vegas Strip stands the most gorgeous pile of rocks I have ever seen! Seven stacks of boulders painted with dayglow tower as high as 35 feet tower over the barren Ivanpah Valley. These rainbow totems known as the Seven Magic Mountains were created by Swiss artist, Ugo Rondinone, create the most striking location for a photo shoot! And, as if the place couldn’t be any more magical, there is absolutely zero admission fee! WOW!

My sister-in-law and I timed our visit to arrive an hour before sunset to capture the best lighting and avoid the crowds. We had a great time taking shots and even climbed on a few. I’m not sure if this is allowed but should you decide to rock climb note that they are very slippery!

There is no public transportation so you must drive to the art installation. If you don’t have a vehicle, traditional taxis, Uber, and Lyft are available for approximately $25.00 round-trip.


From Las Vegas: Follow I-15 S to Sloan Rd (exit 25). Turn left onto Las Vegas Boulevard. Drive 7 miles south on Las Vegas Blvd. and the art is on the left. Parking is available on site.

    Hey everybody! Lately I have been fighting with a lot of challenges. Friends and doctors keep telling me I should consider taking meds, so I may as well here and see how it goes. Problem is, I haven’t taken it for a while, and don’t wanna get back to it, we’ll see how it goes.
