Each year Quartzsite AZ has it's large and well-known show for all kinds of eye candy (mineral form). Anyone new to AZ should visit this exhibit at least once, especially if you are interested in geology, petrology, minerals or earth history. The show has dozens of vendors that gather along the streets of Quartzsite to display and sell their items. Most sellers in Phoenix get at least some of their selection from this show. It goes on through February 28; hopefully it's not all picked through for this weekend. Quartzsite is close to the border of Cali, but doesn't take long to reach on the I-10; just over an hour. The show is mostly outside (few indoor exhibits), so come prepared for some sun, but the weather will be great! We'll meet up at the Starbucks just off the I-10 and the 101 at 10am, spend an afternoon there and be back by 6pm. Car volunteers for rsvp's over 4.
Cost: free- but bring cash for food and whatever you can't live without. You don't have to purchase anything, it's cool to just graze through the fossils and beautiful objects our planet creates! Gas contributions are welcome.
