Edge of the Orchard

I was surprised to see orchards in the hills north of The Dalles, Oregon.  In California, the orchards were only in the flatland where they could be irrigated. I suppose it's possible they get enough rain here to not need irrigation, but the overall feel is pretty dry.  It's an interesting orchard though, and one I will photograph again in the spring when the trees are blooming. For today though, a nice fence line.  Linking to Good Fences.

My Aunt use to own such an Orchard in The Dalles, OR. In this part of the country people farm on hillsides all the time.

Have you been up the Hood River Valley yet? Orchards galore! Very pretty in the spring when all the trees are in bloom.

Maybe like the orchards in Scotland they are on the hillsides because on still nights the cold air collects in the bottoms of the valleys, leaving the slopes slightly warmer.
