Located just outside Las Vegas, Nevada is the Seven Magic Mountains art exhibit. Although it is essentially painted rocks, it's quite the sight to see. Surrounded by the dull brown background of the desert, the bright pops of color seem extra vibrant. I'll let the photos speak for themselves!
Allot at least 30 minutes to check it out and take photos. I was probably there closer to an hour because I was waiting for crowds to clear to take pictures. When I visited on a Thursday around 5pm, there were about 20 people. It's definitely a popular attraction.
If you plan on traveling to Seven Magic Mountains, be sure to do it within the next year, as it's set to end in 2018. There isn't an exact date (that I could find) but the installation is only set for two years and opened May 2016, so I assume it will be gone around May 2018.
Getting there, there are signs to let you know where to exit, but it's a good idea to have an idea of where you are going.
From Las Vegas:
Via I-15 S exit Sloan Rd (exit 25) and turn left to Las Vegas Boulevard. Drive approximately 7 miles south on Las Vegas Blvd. Exhibit is on your left.

Drive north on I-15 to Jean, NV (exit 12), then take NV-161 east toward Las Vegas Blvd. Drive approximately 5 miles north on Las Vegas Blvd. Exhibit is on your right.
