Dinosaurs roam the earth? Well they do in Borrego Springs. Artist Ricardo Breceda has created approximately 129 metal sculptures at Galleta Meadows Estate in Borrego Springs, CA. Dennis Avery, heir to the Avery Labels company, owns the property and commissioned the sculptures. Mr. Avery has generously made the sculptures available for free public viewings. Get a map with listings for the exact locations of each sculpture, then take the approximately 10 mile round trip driving/hiking tour to see the dinosaurs as well as giant sloths, hippos, long horn sheep, elephants, wild hogs, a 12 foot Franciscan friar and his dog and an enormous slithering dragon that appears to burrow under the road and come up on the other side.
