  • Orchards:   "Regular rows of fruit trees extend on either side of hte highway, giving the subsection a rural, agricultural look. This subsection is climaxed by a glimpse of the large Mayerdale house, the site of one of the dedication ceremonies for the HCRH. A new deer fence detracts from the view of the orchards."
