ON THE ROAD TO ARIZONA

GETTING THERE CAN BE HALF THE FUN
The dramatic sunset at Avila Beach is a fitting end to a productive day of rockhounding.
DONNA ALBRECHT

I suspect that like a lot of you, my first trips to Tucson and Quartzsite for the shows was pretty much pedal-to-the-metal. Get there as quickly as I could to maximize the time I had at what still seems to me to be a self-serve, all-you-can-see-and-buy banquet of rocks and minerals that stretches on forever. This past year, however, my husband and I decided to add a few days to the journey and experience some different aspects of being a rockhound, and we had a blast.

In this article, you’ll find some of the adventures we enjoyed while road tripping to Arizona for the shows.

We live in the San Francisco Bay Area, and discovered early we could get to Blythe, California, just before Quartzsite in one long drive. You’ll find a lot more lodging choices in Blythe than in Quartzsite, and it’s only a few minutes to get from Blythe to the show. Tip: Buy gas in Arizona; it’s much cheaper.
