Yes, we all call it "The Gem Show" for short but it's the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show and you can find a whole lot more than turquoise necklaces there! Check out these great finds from sea bed and cliff excavations - the remains of ancient sea creatures. Fabulous! Photo courtesy of Susan Dodson.
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
