Right now if you are reading this, make a trip out to the Anza Borrego Desert for the Super Bloom before it’s gone!! It’s going on right now through mid April. California has gotten a lot of good rain this season and it’s been the best flower bloom in years! Unfortunately I won’t be able to get out to Borrego this year for the Super Bloom but here’s a small recap of the metal sculptures you should also see while you are out there!
There are over 130 metal sculptures scattered throughout the Borrego Desert, created by artist, Ricardo Breceda. Some of the sculptures are a real trek to get to, so make sure you are wearing comfortable shoes and that you are okay with getting your car and yourself a little dusty!
Ricardo’s sculptures celebrate the history and culture of the area, the desert environment, and pure fantasy! Loved seeing the Serpent and Dinosaurs in person. There were never too many people around so we were able to be a little silly in our photos! You can pick up a map in the town’s visitor center that marks where most of the sculptures are! It’s not a huge town so plan accordingly and get there early for flowers and or sculpture hunting!
