Beauty! As I believe I've mentioned before, you should find me a job down there! Maybe I can teach at Washington & Lee. I don't know the schools that are as far north as Front Royal. I'd love to live in that area though. "To survive the Shenandoah must remain!"

Beauty!Second that. Is that the same vantage as your shot of the snow storm of Jan 22? The 'closing in' of the world in that shot is even more dramatic, now that I see what's normally visible.

I'm wondering about the provenance of "To survive the Shenandoah must remain!"

Yes, it is basically the same view. If you go back through the archives you can see the same vista through all four seasons and any variety of weather conditions. I started posting photographs in mid-September, 2002.

That quote is actually from a song I used to listen to when I was a kid. My dad was a civil war buff and it's from a somewhat goofily romanticized song called, "By the Cavalry". Anyway, I'm implying a sort of aesthetic survival, though (not the survival of the Confederacy).
