Dinosaur Fight Near Anza Borrego State Park

Galleta Meadows has over 130 detailed metal sculptures by artist Ricardo Breceda scattered around the beautiful desert town of Borrego Springs, CA, just outside of Anza Borrego State Park in San Diego County. The night sky over the western limit of the Sonoran Desert is stunning and efforts for recognition and preservation of the dark skies here are intentional. The village of Borrego Springs is an International Dark Sky Community and the surrounding State Park is an International Dark Sky Park. The sculptures are great to explore day and night, but framing them with the Milky Way is a treat.
