El Molle

One evening, I hiked to the top of a hill above George´s place for the sunset in the Valle Elqui.

one of George´s sculptures in his orchard bordered by peach and quince trees

the same sculpture from the side

In addition to a ton of grapes, George had over 100 trees: almond, walnut, citrus, apple, persimmon, citrus, peach, pear, apricot, quince and olive trees.

La Señora Flora was very agile for a 74 year old. She comes to George´s twice a week to irrigate the orchard and help with the harvests and weeds. She lives down the road from George, has over 25 grandkids and dug all the irrigation ditches.
