RMN RF Ditch Aerials MP239.JPG

SHOT 6/17/2003 - Aerial photos of the Rocky Ford Ditch as it winds through Rocky Ford, Colo. The ditch is about 13 miles long and was for a long time the way that local farmers watered their crops. Aurora is in the process of permanently acquiring the water rights to the ditch to feed an ever-growing demand to keep up with growth in the city. A farmer works on baling hay with his tractor in his field one afternoon. The small canal running through the field is a personal canal off of the Rocky Ford Ditch..(Photo by Marc Piscotty / © 2003)
