208. Seven Magic Mountains, South Las Vegas, Nevada USA
I did not really know this place existed until one of my travel blogging friends Matt Long posted a pic of it on his Instagram account. I went out to Las Vegas not really knowing where it was and spotted it on my way out to my hotel at the border of Nevada and California. Then just recently, yesterday, my friend Lee Abbamonte also posted a pic as well adding that he did now know it existed. It’s a pretty odd cool place to visit. Nothing there except these “mountains” though and the desert.
It’s located just south of the city of Las Vegas Nevada on your way to the California border. It’s on the left hand side if you are exiting the city. You could just drive on Las Vegas Blvd. and you’ll pass it on your left at some point after leaving the city. It’s just off of I-15.
