Downtown Staunton on a cold January day

 Johnson Street parking garage. Mill Street Grill is located on the left.

 Corner of Johnson and New Streets ... coffee shop and parking garage.

 The cobblestone street leads to Staunton's historic train station with Sears Hill in the background.

 Formerly the Pullman Restaurant, the train station is waiting for someone to bring it back to life.

 The Klotz Building now houses Sunspots (at bottom of hill) in the Wharf area.

 Lewis Street on the west side of the downtown area.

 The historic Board and Batten House that is now used as a private office.

 Driving west out of Staunton, Churchville Avenue turns into Rt. 250 west heading toward Highland County and points beyond.

Rt. 250 with the Appalachian Mountains in the distance. In the winter, it offers a different kind of beauty as the winter woods open up vistas as travelers head toward ski resorts and hiking trails.
