Last year, we took a trip out to the desert. In the area around Borrego Springs, artist Ricardo Breceda had placed around 130 of his sculptures. The metal sculptures ranged from wild horses, to giant insects, to what I believed to be the monster from Tremors. We had fun driving around and looking for the sculptures. We didn’t even begin to see all of them and I had a map. I’m a big fan of the slightly obscure, so this was right up my alley! I don’t know how I didn’t know this was here earlier, but Nicole filled me in with enough time for us to make a stop before we left the area.
When you are headed south on Highway 79 out of Temecula, you’ll pass some horses jumping over the highway. If you’ve been down that road, you know what I mean. Turn around and head back to the entrance to the sculpture garden. You can’t miss it. It’s actually an RV park, but you can get in free if you tell them you are going to the sculpture garden. This is also his gallery, so there are pieces for sale, and we found a few pieces in need of repair, but it’s fun to look at and good for pictures. It’s not a huge area and not what many would consider a sculpture garden, but it was fine for us!
