Good grief, if you don’t follow me on Instagram or Facebook you probably thought I dropped off the end of the world. I’ve been so busy living an artists life, the blog has certainly been pushed from the priority list. As you know, when we are in Utah it’s production mode time. As I said in my last post, between stuff for the gallery and getting inventory for the summer art show season, there is lots to do. And of course visits to the wild horses are a must.
We’ve been out to visit the horses a few times, which gives me more photos to edit, and more art to make. Lol. It’s a good cycle.
Plus, last weekend we had a volunteer event to help make it safer on the range for the horses. You can read all about that, on this post on Wild Mustangs Forever.
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 first wanted to visit the Salt River horses in Arizona two years ago, but that was the winter it rained and rained. So going down strange dirt roads with a big RV, seemed a really bad idea. Then last year, Al was back and forth to Seattle, I was in Palm Springs, and we spent the rest of the winter in our usual places.
So this year, I got more information and made a solid plan for visiting the Salt River wild horses. And I am so glad we did.
First, this area is beautiful. I had no idea what wonderful scenery there was in this part of the valley. We don’t usually like to hang out near the Phoenix valley, but you would hardly know you are 20 miles from such a large metropolitan area. And second, the horses are gorgeous.
