You feel like you’ve stepped back in time when you see the prehistoric metalworks creatures on the desert plain at Anza Borrego Springs.  All of the animals roamed the area millions of years ago. 

Ricardo Breceda positions each piece of his Sky Art carefully at Galleta Meadows for realism. Breceda hopes that his Sky Art creates a sense of fun and whimsy, and connection to the landscape.  Apparently it does, because people have weekly picnics by the sculptures, and decorate them for the holidays!

A simple driving tour map is pictured above, and a detailed interactive Google map is at:   Maps are also available around town in Borrego Springs.  An interesting article is at
