lol well seeing as how i am from Harlan County, I would hardly consider Ashland or even Corbin for that matter to be mountainous :P haha They are both very beautiful areas though. I have fallen in love with the Ashland area as of late. But anyways heres a picture of the town looking toward the river.

Ashland? Its poor and depressing. The job market is non-existant. If you want mountains move to Colorado.

Ashland seems a lot cleaner than Huntington the times I've been there, but the economy is still pretty bad. If you need a place with lots of jobs I'd look in Bullitt Co (in the Knobs), Berea, or London/ Corbin

Ashland is not poor and depressing. That's a bit of an exaggeration I do believe.

I have an uncle that lives in Whitley Co and my brother in-law is from there as well. If you want 'real' mountains would would need to look south of Williamsburg toward Jellico, TN. There is also some beautiful country around Cumberland Falls
