Time of year
We’d driven on a part of the main thrufare & noticed that it was named Pegleg Road, so later learning that there was a nearby Pegleg Smith Monument wasn’t totally unexpected. Just ask around & you’ll be directed to an RV area & the monument is nearby.
Passed it on the way to Fonts Point, OK to stop if you are driving by, I wouldn't make a special trip.
Not much to see here, but it's a good story, and a spot to stretch your legs en route to Borrego Springs. Would be interesting to visit on the first Saturday in April for the "Liar's Contest."
One of the stops on our visit to Anza-Borrego area historic landmarks. Many RVs clustered around the area, but all seemed friendly.
This monument memorializes a prospector who epitomized the old culture of the desert. He was known for telling tall tales of lost gold mines, and an annual liars' contest is held in his honor at the monument.
