Galleta Meadows In all, there are 129 figures of artist Breceda's creations all over this area just set in the desert here, fun to explore. These are just a few.
The sculptures were created by artist/welder Ricardo Breceda, who is based in Perris, California.
Now this huge serpent goes a very long way both sides in the road and is impressive.

Then our friends Jean and Skip stopped by for a lovely afternoon chat, catch up again as they are heading out tomorrow morning. So nice to see them again. Probably not until next winter again, if all works out well for everyone.

That was our fun day here in the desert, love Borrego springs, so laidback and peaceful here and wonderful scenery to boot. Hopefully tomorrow I can find the snake or at least try.
