'Perris Jurassic Park' Sculptures by Ricardo Breceda

A friend recently went to Borrego Springs and sent me pictures of the sculptures made by Ricardo Brecedo. See the video Huell Howser filmed for KPBS Ricardo's website and expecially watch the CBS news segment that shows the artist at work welding more sculptures in his studio.
After years of being penned up in a paved yard next to the Interstate 215, Ricardo Breceda's Perris-born dinosaurs are migrating to the wild.

In twos and threes, Breceda and workers load the prehistoric beast look-alikes into trucks and haul them off to the desert surrounding Borrego Springs on the eastern edge of San Diego County.
And more videos can be seen here My friends pictures can be seen here and if you want to know more about Borrego Springs go to Waynes Word.
