We found a combination mining museum, knick-knack shop, rockhound supply depot and RV park in the middle of nowhere. It even has its own golf course (El Rocko - Par 3). We decided, though, that we would probably not be staying there anytime soon. There's being away from civilization but you can take it too far!
Our goal on this trip was to find some dumortierite, which is a dark blue/gray stone that is virtually indistinguishable from the billions of other dark blue/gray stones in the desert. Still we managed to find some and had a great old time.
