Creatures of the Desert, part 1

We continued to get highly unusual torrents of rain in May. I lost track of the rainfall records being set around Santa Rosa this month, but I knew I was tired of precipitation. Time to head for the desert.

For this trip I wanted to take the Ogre off road to the Fonts Point scenic overlook above the badlands, and I wanted to visit the fantastic metal sculptures of animals real, extinct, and imaginary spread across open desert outside Borrego Springs.

They call me Old Grumble-Face. I have no idea why they do that....

    Avery Labels — I guess I maybe knew that? A Fortune 500 company! Wow!
    The artistic creativity of those creatures is amazing — not only to come up with the concept, but then actually produce it in physical form.
    I didnt know there was a Walmart Camel either, but there is, maybe, inconclusive whether they were true camels or not.
    Thanks for this part of the tour, looking forward to the others.

    Send us some torrents of your rain please, global warming might be sending the southern osculation sluggish which means less rain. Great sculptures, although my pedantic-ness thinks the mural should really be called a mosaic.

      Would gladly send you torrents of rain if international postage rates weren’t so outrageous, especially during periods of sluggish osculation!
