Before LADWP sucked all of the water out of the Owens Valley, there had been orchards. This scraggly row of trees is the first time I've seen what looks as if it could be the remnants of one of those orchards.

When I first visited Owens Valley, people were regularly picking from the old orchards. The best free fruit, they said, came from the abandoned Japanese internment camp at Manzanar.
