Boom And Bust In A Desert Town
series: Desert Speaks
air date: 11/15/12 1:30 PM
The small town of Quartzsite, Arizona, located just 20 miles east of the Colorado River, has been a rock hound's paradise since the 1960s. These days, this former stagecoach town is also a mecca to well over a million visitors each year, most of whom converge on it in a wave of RV's during the months of January and February. Thousands of vendors of rocks, gems, minerals, fossils and everything else imaginable create one of the world's largest open-air flea markets. The Desert Speaks crew visits the town in the dead of summer and again in the bustling winter months to meet the unique characters of this community and learn the history behind this enigmatic place.
