Rockin’ In Quartzsite

Quartzsite, AZ   High 68  Low 41

I convinced Jim that we were going on a self-guided tour of Quartzsite’s Public Art Event. Sixteen rocks have been painted by local artists and are located at different places all over Q. Our goal – all sixteen rocks. Goal was met.

Please enjoy.

  1. They are lovely. I love doing stuff like this. I made Paul take me all over several cities to find all the painted sheep, goats, presidents, etc. He wasn't too excited but was happy I was.

  5. Wonderful rock art! I like it better than the painted cows, sharks, hearts, and who knows what other places have done.
