Incredible beautiful. Wonderful, caring, and hospitable people. Great outdoor opportunities. Retirement. It is really a big area. Huntington is different from Roanoke is different from Ashville, etc.

Beautiful scenery but with "robber baron" style environmental exploitation, poverty, mining, music, and the Trail of course,

The first thing that came to my mind was the Appalachian Trail.

My father's side of the family is from Appalachia, and I was born there. I have many relatives still there. So I think of my family history, I suppose, and the steel mills and coal mines. A lot of poverty and people who are not very well educated and don't want to leave to go elsehwere to get a job other than mining and don't care about what those cojmpanies do to the earth . There is a lot of natural beauty but a lot of it has been damaged by mining and some disregard for environmental issues by locals, also. I go skiing there several times each winter, so I think of that.

Stereotypes almost always exist for a reason, they are usually based on reality. There is a lot of poverty and low education in that area, and disregard for the environment and health issues.
