Magic is not hard to find in the desert. In fact, any living organism able to survive desert hardships should be applauded with a standing ovation. But finding color in the desert- now that is an extreme rarity! With dusty yellow mountains as far as the eye can see, artist Ugo Rondinone broke the Sierra scape with seven of his own abstract Magic Mountains. The magic in this contrast is like water to the parched tongue. We might not have known how much we needed it, but these vibrant colors represent a reformed connection between us and the many dusty miles ahead.
