After leaving Flagstaff, we journeyed south to Phoenix and Tucson to get some annual maintenance work done on the RV. With the RV tuned up and ready for the road again, we continued on to our next destination: Borrego Springs for a three week stay and our last stop before returning to Oceanside CA for the winter.
Nestled in the heart of the Anza-Borrego desert, Borrego Springs is a hidden gem that offers a unique blend of natural beauty and modern amenities. As we checked in at the luxurious Springs of Borrego RV Resort, We love this park for its peace and quite as well as great pickleball and great people. This is a perfect spot to stay and explore the natural beauty and sights in this part of California.
To fully appreciate the area’s rich history, I took some time to explore the surrounding landscape. The Anza-Borrego desert has a long and fascinating history, dating back thousands of years to the indigenous peoples who first called this rugged terrain home. Later, the area was a major hub for Spanish explorers and missionaries, who established settlements and missions throughout the region. The blooming wildflowers in the desert park made it even more special for us.
One of the most intriguing sights in the area is the Galleta Meadows, a vast expanse of land dotted with giant metal sculptures. These fascinating works of art are the brainchild of sculptor Ricardo Breceda, who has created dozens of larger-than-life creatures that seem to come to life against the stark desert landscape. From towering dinosaurs to massive serpents, each sculpture is a true masterpiece that speaks to the timeless allure of the natural world.
Another must-see destination in the area is the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. This sprawling wilderness area covers more than 600,000 acres, and is home to a rich array of wildlife, flora, and fauna. Whether you’re hiking along the rugged trails, marveling at the unique rock formations, or simply soaking up the sun amidst the stunning desert vistas, this park is an absolute must-visit for anyone traveling through the region.
