And the historic buildings, and the remnants of the Civil War (John Brown and Mason-Dixon Line Country), and the trains (former railroad lawyer here ~ that's a C&O freight run down there), and the confluence of the Shendendoah (in the back) and Potomac (in the front) Rivers, and the Appalachian Trail ~ well, it's a good place to be.
