Murals along Hawksbill Creek

Luray, VA

Luray has a number of murals in town, partly due to the efforts of the Luray Tree and Beautification Committee. Here we can see the popular walking trail along Hawksbill Creek.

I love the white owl and the deer in this mural. See the mountains? This town is situated between the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Massanutten Range. It's known for Luray Caverns.

A sign on the red mill tells us it is Willow Grove Mill, which is just south of town. I showed the mill itself in a January post.

  1. Fabulous murals and reflections.

  2. Great photos Linda. I haven't been to Luray in several years but I remember the caverns. I also remember the mural with that lovely owl.

  3. Beautiful, and quite realistic in their look.

  4. Wonderful. The reflections are a real bonus too.

  5. Lovely murals and great reflections in the water!
    Happy Thanksgiving!

  6. Oh wow, you find the neatest things along your travels

  7. I love the murals. I wish more people would paint these. The world could use a little more art.
