Reflections On the River Trail
On a ride just before dark one evening last week, I caught this image of the Arkansas Queen paddle boat as it passed a towboat pushing barges upstream. I thought the scene of river commerce and recreation sharing the corridor was a bit of a reflection of the use of the River Trail itself. While the River Trail was built primarily for recreational use, it is a major link for many bike commuter routes and has served to help attract commercial and residential development along the Arkansas River and in the downtown areas.
