The Pumpkin Patch Sand Concretions
Ocotillo Wells Near Anza-Borrego
By L. Bremner – DesertUSA.com

If you are on an ATV or touring around the Ocotillo Wells State Vehicular Recreational Area, be sure to stop by the Pumpkin Patch. It is a point of interest where you can see sand concretions shaped like pumpkins.  Click here for a video and more photos.

This unique landscape is the result of wind and water continuously eroding the surface soil and revealing globular sandstone concretions that look much like pumpkins in size and shape.
