Galleta Meadows in Anza Borrego Desert

Galleta Meadows

Took a day trip out to Borrego Springs in the Anza Borrego Desert to see the gigantic menagerie of prehistoric animals that rise out of the desert floor.  Located on a huge privately owned estate called Galleta Meadows on the outskirts of Borrego Springs, these GIANT extinct Sabertoothed Tigers, Woolly Mammoths, Desert Tortoises, Wild Horses, Camels, Sloths, and Elephants magically appear as you are driving down the road.  Dirt roads lead cars right to the statues where you can wander around looking closely at the metal sculptures.  It is magical and a surreal surprise to your visit.  Join me on my video tour of the statues.
