Save this date for the fun Borrego Springs Sculptures Tour. Join the caravan at the CA76 / I-15 Park-n-Ride (south of Temecula) lot at 0830. Departure at 0900 after a driver’s meeting. The roads getting to and from Borrego Springs are spectacular, but Borrego is this cool desert town that’s home to more than 100 iron sculptures created by artist. Stay tuned for the day’s itinerary!
Check out this website excerpt:
“Something more than desert wildflowers and the spectacular Anza-Borrego Desert State Park is attracting visitors to the Borrego Valley in Southern California. People are coming from around the United States and internationally to see the amazing 130 full-sized metal sculptures here that are inspired by creatures that roamed this same desert millions of years ago. The artworks range from prehistoric mammals to historical characters, fanciful dinosaurs, and a 350-foot-long fanciful serpent.
As you drive through the roads that weave through the area you’ll see sculptures of wild horses in a nearby field, sabertooth tigers in pursuit, and desert tortoises that seem as if they’re crawling through the brush. The artist, Ricardo Breceda, brings life to his sculptures by capturing each creature in motion. They are so still, yet all you see is movement.”
