There’s No Attraction In The World Like This One In Nevada
There’s a massive piece of artwork in the Nevada desert that’s only accessible by four-wheel drive vehicle or motorcycle. Located near Overton in the Moapa Valley’s Mormon Mesa, the unique attraction is free and always open. We’re pretty sure you’ll agree, there’s nothing in the world quite like it.
Double Negative by contemporary artist Michael Heizer is essentially an anti-sculpture. Instead of building something in the desert, Heizer took something away. A lot of something actually: 244,000 tons of rocks.

Double Negative is publicly accessible but somewhat hard to find. If you decide to explore this unique attraction, you may want to bring this map. Don’t forget, you will need an all-terrain vehicle to get there. Also be sure to wear sunscreen and a good pair of shoes.
