Neat sculptures placed out across desert setting!!! Fun to explore, walk amid and take fun photos! Horses, elephants, mammoths, huge turtles, a cool looking serpent, and more!

Our young grandkids came to town and they loved the sculptures, especially the serpent and the scorpion, but it is a grand tour to see all 70 of these creations. The tour is especially good on hot days when hiking is impossible.

You can not go to Borrego Springs without going out to see the Galleta Meadows. Truly a time well spent.

We had an excellent view of the meteor showers along with the four planets. It was hot during the day but the nights were beautiful.

This trip was the second time I was in Borrego Springs to see the sculptures. The first time I didn't get pictures of all of them, this time I hope I did. There are 131 of them. Bumpy dirt roads criss-cross the area on both...More

Galleta Meadows is a very large area and spread out with over a hundred metal sculptures. These sculptures are quite a sight, very detailed and interesting. Great for photography.

No fees. The sculptures are placed along the roads and you just pull off the road to see them and drive on to the next one. I have a small car and was a little nervous at getting stuck in the soft sand, but it wasn't a... More

The sculptures are either visible from the paved road, or a very short distance off the road. (like 100 feet or so). Most of the time the dirt/sand roads are easily passable by care. This is NOT a 4-wheel drive adventure... More
