Bees!


While we were driving through Palisade today, we stopped and
snapped a photo of one of the most important cogs of the Grand
Valley fruit industry...Bees! Most orchard farmers don't own their
own bees, but have them brought in by services each year to have
their fruit trees pollinated. Without pollination, there would be
no fruit. The bees are so important to the local economy that the
Town of Palisade recently held their International Honey Bee
Festival to honor them!

Honey Bee festival? What an awesome history! I'm a traveller who is always looking for new adventures and maybe this will be my next objective! I'm just back from my incredible trip to Jerusalem and I recommend you also this as a traveller!
