But first, it was time to check out the newest sculptures in the area and ones that I had not previously discovered. There must be several hundred different sculptures scattered in all directions from the town of Borrego Springs.
Collectively, they are called Galleta Meadow Estates. It is private land, but you are allowed to camp, hike, and explore the area to your heart’s content.
After a good day of hiking and scrambling in the rough off-trail areas, the feet needed a day off, so it was time to go for a cruise and see what else we could find within a few miles of camp. I started off checking out the Arroyo Salado campsite, just off highway S22. But the road down the wash kept on going, and going ….
So we did too. Hailey was likely glad she was not along, as it got a bit rough at times. There are some incredible formations in this wash.
Eventually this route joins up with the Truckhaven Trail, and the going gets considerably rougher. There were a few spots where you definitely would not want to meet another vehicle!
