|This year I am going to try to keep up with my travels. LOL.
I am in New Mexico at the moment, but could not start this year without showing you an amazing place that I visited at Thanksgiving last year.
The town is Borrego Springs, and it is just west of the Salton Sea in the southern part of California.
The WINS, my traveling group, celebrate Thanksgiving there every year, and I was able to bring my parents with me also.
Now...Borrego Springs is not exactly a thriving metropolis (3500 pop.), but it has something that no other town in the world has...the amazing metal sculptures of Ricardo Breceda, scattered throughout the desert in and out of Borrego Springs.
A land developer named Dennis Avery had the vision of using his land as an enormous outdoor gallery, home to Breceda's Artwork. There are now approx. 130 sculptures scattered throughout the desert. A good majority are of prehistoric animals, but there is also a jeep crawling over the mountain, a miner and his mule, a wine vineyard, and so much more. We toured for a whole day looking at them. What a treat. I hope you enjoy the pictures.
