Borrego Springs, California



We drove to Anza-Borrego Desert State Park to see the Galleta Meadows Metal Sculptures.  
The park encompasses more than 600,000 acres, making it the largest desert state park in the nation.




The drive there was stunning; on one side of the road you could see tall mountains and
on the other side you could see valleys where the mountains seemed more like a canyon. 


 
Ricardo Breceda, an accidental artist, has over 130 metallic sculptures on display scattered over 3 miles of Borrgeo Valley.

From science to history and nature, the sculptures have evolved into whim and fantasy -- something for everyone on this large desert palette.







One of the greatest parts about this little adventure is that it is something that you could easily enjoy from a vehicle if you are traveling with someone who isn't mobile.

Also, I was tickled to not have a bunch of junk in the background of my pictures.
These statues really are placed in the middle of the dessert with no eye sores in sight.

And let's not forget, it was FREE; my favorite price ever!

If you would like to see more photos, I stumbled upon this guy's blog;
he did a great job capturing these large statues at different angles.
