Part of the fun of the Razorback Greenway is in exploring the side paths, the countless shorter trails that branch away toward neighborhoods, down into Scull Creek and to other hidden places. Some of them are paved, some are probably nothing more than animal trails, and some started human-made but have since been reclaimed by the plants and ground.
I found one of that last category this morning. One loop goes to a corner of Fayetteville’s Gordon Long Park that’s essentially a tucked-away little wetland. The pavement gradually disappears under mud and muck deep enough to tug on a walker’s shoes, and the more solid-looking meadow inside the loop is actually squishy with water. The cattail cluster and other growth there make me think it wasn’t this way just because of our recent rain. This place is used to water. Wetlands are great for healthy life and water, and they’re not bad for a photographer. Just another prize along the Greenway.
It was a perfect morning to tackle another section of the trail and a comfortable end to a rainy week.
I hitched on a few more shots to the previous post that I took this weekend but fit better there — take a look, if you like. And thanks for looking, period. We’re almost to the edge of Fayetteville in this long trip down the Greenway.
