A View of Chestnut Ridge

I took this photo at Outback in Harrisonburg yesterday. We are looking southwest across University Boulevard. 

Chestnut Ridge is known as the place where Confederate General Turner Ashby was killed during the Battle of Harrisonburg (June 1862).  Obviously the scene has changed since then. The long building just left of center is Costco; the tall lights on the right are illuminating JMU's softball field.
