I just spent close to an hour looking for even a single picture of Quartzite, Arizona. I know we've driven through the town many times. I thought for sure we had a picture or two, but I couldn't find one. I did a Google search and found these:
On Quartzite's town web page it says, "The Rock Capital of the World". I think they're right...there are rocks everywhere! But it's not because of all the rocks you see forever in every direction. It's because of the many gem and mineral shows. Along with the gem and mineral shows there are swap meets that attract millions of people to the town each year.
We never drove through when anything was going on, so it always looked like a ghost town to me. How the town could attract millions of people a year is beyond me. It's hot, windy and, well, HOT. Our favorite part was a stop at Dairy Queen or McDonalds for a cold drink or ice cream!
For more on the letter Q...visit Jenny Matlock's Alphabe-Thursday. And if you've been to Quartzite and can explain the attraction...please do! :)
