I know some of you couldn't resist checking out the Ricardo Breceda Scupltures after Diana Lindsay's incredible presentation on Friday night. Tell us how the Sculpture run went. Share your pictures and stories here. :D

Here's some pictures from the group that went on Sunday as an exit run...

Whoa. Haven't seen that one. Has it been around awhile or is it a new addition?

While I've seen many of these sculptures on past visits to Borrego Springs, seeing them after listening to Diana Lindsay's presentation gave them new meaning to me. Touring around to see some of the new arrivals was a great way to end Borregofest.
