Picture of the Week – Falls Lake Dam

View from Falls Dam

This week’s picture was taken during a fun bike ride along the Falls Lake Dam this past Sunday. I’ve been doing a lot of running as I train for the City of Oaks Marathon and biking the day after my long runs is a great way to shake out the kinks in my legs. One of my favorite places to bike is along the dam with great views of the lake on one side and the Neuse River on the other. You can also easily connect to the Neuse Greenway which provides for a great 6.5 mile ride along the river from the dam to the WRAL soccer park on Reedy Creek Road.

Picture of the Week – The Neuse River!

The Neuse River – Taken June 23, 2013

I went for a run along the Upper Neuse River Greenway last night and snapped the picture above right by the parking and canoe launch area. This spot is located just below the dam and the recently opened Falls of Neuse Bridge. Water levels have dropped since the heavy rain last week, but there was still a nice flow to the river. I noticed several people enjoying the river, taking pictures, fishing, and even a few kayaks. I love walking along the Upper Neuse Greenway and enjoying the great waterway. A real gem of North Raleigh!
