A New Trail

Roanoke is developing a series of connecting greenway trails to be used for recreational purposes. The Roanoke River Greenway is probably the most widely used but there are others in development. Yesterday I explored the Link Run that connects downtown Roanoke with the Valley View Mall area.The trail was challenging in areas with some rather steep inclines. I saw few people on the trail and I will admit I was somewhat concerned because it runs through a part of town that has a rather high crime area. I also saw numerous empty beer cans and wine bottles along the way. I don't think I will travel that greenway alone .. hopefully it will become more populated as people find it. I also mowed the grass - can you believe mowing grass in SW VA in January! Near record highs this past weekend.....
