“The Magnificent Sculptures of Ricardo Breceda”
Review of Galleta Meadows

Galleta Meadows
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 July 2014

Day or night, seeing the giant sculptures of dinosaurs, enormous rattledragons, ancient camelids, elephants, and so much more is a treat no matter the age. It's a favorite for night sky photographers, as the setting in which the sculptures exist stir the imagination. Accessible and fun, and absolutely recommended.

Get a map of all these creative sculptures and try to visit all of them (I just do the northern set though). Use the internet to find the map. Dawn may be the best time because the wind is lower than dusk and have the best lighting. Regardless, these must be seen. Do a bit of research on them too.

Thank you Mr. Avery for starting this.

A really good example of what metal sculptures can do for a area. The area being a desert valley called Borrego Springs.
Sculptures are located all around the town grouped in themes. Wonderful.

Wonderful sculptures all around Borrego Springs...the map given in town will pinpoint each and every one....Ricardo Breceda is the artist and there is a book published of his work in the Valley....so wonderful.....You can visit all or just a few....that will determine the amount of time it takes...

We visited most of the sculptures, and had no trouble navigating the dirt road portions. We had map, provided by the visitors center, so finding them was no trouble at all. I took some fantastic photos, and really got a kick out of how elaborate some of them are. Well worth a visit if you interested in this sort of thing.
