Fun, fanciful sculptures. They are scattered over a wide area so driving or biking is ideal. One can drive right up to the sculptures for a close up look and feel. A large serpent, bighorns, horses, dinosaurs, farm workers, Junipero Serra and camelids are some...More

As you drive through this oasis, take a minute to explore these metal sculptures. Our favorites were the sea serpent and scorpion!

We had so much fun seeing the iron sculptures on display. We stopped at the Chamber of Commerce office to pick up a map so we could visit them all.

Bizzare set of rusty metal statues of local and mythical creatures. Very well constructed and interesting to explore. Great photo ops all over the desert.

So fun exploring and finding all of these iron statues throughout Borrego Springs...and they are all over the Valley. Find the grape vineyard, the jeep, the Indian head, horses, turtles, camels, scorpions, mammoths etc!

These are cool. The dragon is HUGE... continues across the street. Just not my thing. But the kids loved it!

The sculptures are either visible from the paved road, or a very short distance off the road. (like 100 feet or so). Most of the time the dirt/sand roads are easily passable by care. This is NOT a 4-wheel drive adventure... More
