This trip is about going places I’ve wanted to go, seeing things I’ve wanted to see and doing things I wanted to do but couldn’t for various reason. Since I started dreaming of full time RVing several years ago I’ve been reading about places other RVers go.
You can get an idea of the size of these sculptures by comparing them to Murphy at 80 pounds. They are huge.
I don’t have any sort of plan for this trip. I’m just going where the wind blows me. Searching for the sun brought me to the Palm Springs area. Little did I know this area holds many of the places I’ve wanted to visit.
Murphy and I headed out one day to visit the Salton Sea but we ended up in Borrego Springs instead. Borrego Springs is about 112 miles from the campground where we stayed in Indio. The drive was beautiful. We saw the Saltan Sea, Anza Borrego State Park, and the little town of Borrego Springs.
Best of all we saw the Galleta Meadows metal sculptures. There are more than 130 of them scattered around the desert. We didn’t see them all but we made a dent. Murphy barked at them because they were so big.
This sculpture seems to be the favorite. It actually sits on both sides of the road.
I’m considering staying here for a while longer because they are thinking there will be a super bloom event in the desert very soon and I’d love to see that.
I’m camped at the Saltan Sea currently. More about it next post.
