I have wanted to visit Borrego Springs and see the sculptures in the desert for a while. We are in between art shows right now, with our next one in Palm Springs this weekend.
We left the Salt River area, spent about a week in Quartzsite, and decided to come here for a week or so. It’s kind of on the way, and a good chance to stop and see the area. The Anza Borrego state park is the big draw here, and at 600,000 acres there is a lot to see. We are planning a few hikes, but it’s been wet and cool. So driving around, and seeing the 130 sculptures out in the desert was perfect.
This is the giant serpent, that I have obviously edited, and at 350 feet is the biggest one here.
I have enjoyed our stay in the Tonto National Forest and the Salt River area so much. I’m really glad we decided to stay longer than originally planned. We’ve been out everyday walking the river, looking for birds and wild horses, and Al has been doing some plein air painting as well.
I have a ton of photos, so sit back and enjoy what I have to share today.
Photographing the horses in the river was number one on my want list here. It’s taken some work, but I’ve managed to get some exceptional shots.
