|The Town of Marshall / C. Calhoun 2012|
I got up this morning and went to town. I love the little town I live in – it’s a quaint, quiet place where the people are artsy and progressive, but still love the feel of small-town friends.
My kind of place!
There was an arts and crafts festival earlier today and I went, but didn’t stay long: I was getting drenched and I had only a tiny umbrella with me.
I am all for supporting artists and crafters, but since I already fall into both categories, I’d say that I appreciate it more than I can buy it.
After ambling through the fair, I found a Greenway that I sort of knew was there, but had never really walked it. The last time I tried, it was short and unfinished – and I love a good, long walk. The rain let up long enough to walk the 3/4 mile loop, but allowed me ample time to get some beautiful images.

This bridge crosses the French Broad River, leaving out of Marshall
The result is that I found out another reason I love my little town: a huge river runs through it (the French Broad), there’s a Greenway alongside it, and I got some great shots of the early-changing foliage.
For the record, if I ever have a million dollars, I want to really expand that Greenway and plant a lot more trees in Marshall. This town is so beautiful and I’ve always imagined it with beautiful trees lining the sidewalks.
Take a look at my gallery of treasures:

This is the bridge leading into Marshall. I took this photo from the Greenway.

I used a “paint” filter for this one, so it looks like a painting.
