Dan Wright, who helped build Murray Run, was honored on this sign, which wood bores are eating as we speak^
The Murray Run Greenway in Roanoke has a new sign and it's a dandy ... with a small flaw: the map is upside down. But, hey, we can't always be perfect.
The big, honkin' sign, mounted in concrete and bearing what I'd guess to be a significant expense, replaces the small wooden sign that wood bores got hold of. These little guys invented the auger, I hear.
The new greenway sign is quite a nice little stopoff, but it takes a minute to understand that you're at the top going down, not the other way around, which has a lot more logic on its side, considering where you walk the minute you leave the sign. But if you orient yourself a little bit, the photo with the red mark through it gives you a picture of where you're going and it's pretty interesting, frankly.
