I've got said luscious wines and succulent fruit and delightful dinners. yet there is not more evocative event of the 2 valleys than the scent of new-mown hay within the fields at nightfall. If someone have been to shut their eyes, they can no longer inform in the event that they have been in Provence or the North Fork Valley. That candy, earthy scent is a part of the wonderful thing about those locations.

As an example, the ruins of the infamous Château du Marquis de Sade are nearly seamless with the rest of the village of Lacoste. The stonework of the village matches the stonework of the chateau, and the village and the chateau share the steep slopes that lead up to the latter. Many of the currently occupied buildings in the town and the chateau were built at the same time, in the tenth century. The fields that now surround the hill of Lacoste have been tended for centuries. There is little in evidence here that shows that the Romans or Greeks were in the area, but only a few miles east sit the wonders of Roman architecture in Orange and Avignon.
Other crops are also irrigated, but they do not share the strict regulations regarding when, where, and how much water to apply. In the North Fork nearly every crop needs to be irrigated, including grapes, and no comparable regulations prohibit vineyard irrigation. Some irrigation is from center-pivot irrigation sprinklers and some from movable pipes, both of which draw water from underground aquifers. Most farmers and ranchers in this area, however, use surface water running through canals and acequias that get their water from the Grand Mesa and other surrounding mountains.
As far as the specifics of settlement, Enos Hotchkiss and Sam Wade first brought fruit trees to the North Fork of the Gunnison in 1881 and 1882. This was the beginning of the land homesteading of the fertile valley of the North Fork and the orchard culture that still exists today. Except for a few buildings that date back to the late nineteenth century, little in Hotchkiss’s built environment is recognizable from its past. Generally, the remnants that do exist date from the early to mid-twentieth century, although things are changing fairly rapidly.
