Beautiful area indeed, Lexington's my favorite town and I usually stop by every time I drive to Bosses place.
I've spent so much time there I could probably give tours, wish I had known you were traveling through I'd picked a couple other places in town for you to see. Lee's Chapel and the VMI are both in walking distance of Stonewalls home, in fact he walked it everyday when he taught there. The cannons he used for teaching back in the late 1850's are still lined up out front. They also have a very nice museum across from the VMI, there's another under the Lee Chapel across from his family tomb.
You done got me cranked up....
Here's a quick shot part way down the mountain over looking Buena Vista and Lexington beyond.
Pictures just can't show the beauty of that part of the country.
