Momma and Baby Camel

Wednesday, March 3, 2010
On my wildflower trek yesterday I came upon fields with these "rusty" sculptures.  Everything from pre-historic creatures to several rows of grape vines and farm workers.  I was fascinated.  In the middle of a grassy field stood pre-historic elephants, sloths and other creatures.  And they weren't all in the same field.  They were scattered over large plots in the Borrego Springs countryside.  Apparently a local philanthropist owns the land and has commissioned a Mexican artist to create these pieces for everyone to enjoy.  It was so wonderful to have such a display of art in a public place for all to enjoy.  Well worth the trip.
