I finally made my way to Seven Magic Mountains and can cross that off my Travel Bucket List.
Seven Magic Mountains is comprised of seven towers of colorful, stacked boulders standing more than thirty feet high right outside of Las Vegas.
The exhibition opened May 11, 2016 and was originally scheduled to be on view for two years, but with such a large amount of interest, it may be staying longer. But, at minimum it should remain in place until the end of 2018.
There is no admission fee; it’s free and open to the public.
I must say, it was absolutely gorgeous, especially at sunrise with no traffic!
Secondly, I must give thanks to all of the bloggers who have been and provided great advice and tips within their posts. All of your tips and tricks came in handy and I appreciate it!
For example, on one blog, I learned how to avoid the crowd by arriving early, as close to sunrise as possible. What an awesome tip! I set my alarm for 6 AM, waiting for the sun to come up just a bit, got dressed, and hit my Lyft app for a ride.
Public Transportation to Seven Magic Mountains
In addition to learning the best time to arrive to beat the crowd, I also learned that there is no public transportation to get you to Seven Magic Mountains with the exception of using Lyft or Uber. The round trip ride is not cheap, but the outdoor art exhibit is worth it.
I used my Lyft app for the first time and got an awesome driver who took me out there and back. I checked for an Uber, but the cost was about $30 each way. With Lyft, I saved about $10. Feel free to use my promo code for a discount off your next ride.

By the way, be kind and tip your driver. Even if it’s only a buck or two.

Photography at Seven Magic Mountains
Anywho, I planned to use a photographer which did not materialize and neither did me getting a tripod materialize in time. Therefore, I took my own photos, and asked the only two people who were out there to grab a few photos of me with my camera. The two guys laughed and the took a few photos for me. Thanks, dude!
I sure appreciate him because he didn’t have to do it.
After spending a little bit of time there and shooting a few photos, I headed back to the driver and hit my Lyft app to take me back to my hotel for breakfast.
What I Would Do Differently
If I could do anything differently, I would have rented a car and drove, of course. I would have also had a photographer or just someone there to capture some great photos. All of those were my plans from the beginning, but things didn’t all go as planned – which sometimes happens.
But, it’s okay because I got there and back safely with a few great photos. It’s still a win in my book if you ask me.
