Early winter is a gem of a season in Arizona, and it tends to kick off in the East Valley. For the next two months, rockhounds can browse events from Quartzsite to Tucson; one of the first of the year is the annual Flagg Gem and Mineral Show at Mesa Community College last weekend.
That’s where Tribune photographer Jennifer Grimes found these avid collectors and sellers.
Each week, InFocus captures a slice of life in the East Valley through the lens of Tribune photographers. The events and activities will be entertaining and something we can all relate to — or enjoy.
