Garst Mill Greenway

Walking along the same trail day after day, week after week, month after month, can get boring so I went back to Garst Mill the other day. The trail is much shorter than the Roanoke River Greenway in Salem but it was a nice change of pace...


  1. Excellent photos Elena.

    We have more than a 1/2 dozen trails that we use to avoid the boredom thing.

  2. Thanks Slam...we have quite a few trails here too but I hate driving to get to them!

  3. In the 70s & 80s, when I lived near this park, I walked it often with my dog. It used to be a wild, beautiful place—with a huge turtle who lived in the creek. Then the county paved an asphalt path through the middle (great for skateboarders and stroller-pushers, I guess), rip-rapped the creek so it no longer flowed free (and the turtle vanished), and eventually put up the plastic playground monstrosity. You should have seen this park in its heyday—before the county tried to "improve" on nature.

  4. Love the bee pics, Elena!
