Most People Have No Idea This Incredibly Unique Attraction In New Mexico Exists

On the flat plains near Quemado, in Catron County, 400 stainless steel poles stretch toward the sky.

No one visits this spot without prior arrangement but, if they did, the sight of these poles would prove baffling.

The Dia Art Foundation commissioned The Lightning Field.

Today, you still need to arrange a visit through the foundation. This is possible between May and October in 2017 – lightning is most likely to occur in July and August.

The foundation picks you up in Quemado and transports you to a cabin near the art installation. Once there, you stay overnight – potentially with other visitors. This might sound slightly unorthodox; then again, it’s also a one-of-a-kind experience.
