La Casa Tortuga in Borrego Springs, California

Out & About

Homes in the Southern California high desert are a little different from normal rural or urban homes.

A few weeks ago when I was in the high desert, I found La Casa Tortuga. Looks like this:

At the left frame, you can see some colorful signs. They tell you how far you have to go to escape the desert heat:

La Casa Tortuga means “Turtle House,” and they had lots of turtles in the front yard:

I would expect them to have desert tortoise garden art since the desert tortoise lives in the high desert. However, that looks like a Galapagos Tortoise to me, although I’m no biology expert on garden art….
