. . . to capture some of the fall color around Rhode Island. While some areas may have peaked, there were plenty of green-leafed trees on my morning excursion last Wednesday, the 13th. I started at Carbuncle Pond, a state fishing area, but the fog off the water was too thick that I was temporarily uninspired, so I ventured off around the Scituate reservoir. Exploring the dirt roads in the area leads to some good locations. Study the RI State road map and look for roads that follow the edge of the water, or cross over streams. These are likely areas where you will have good views of foliage, often reflected in the calm water typical in the early morning. Don’t forget to mark you map when you find a good location that has a clear view and a place to park safely, even if the color is not great at the time. There’s always next week for locations not yet peak, or next year for those locations past their prime. Also, sharing locations with others may lead you to find out about places you haven’t yet found. Sharing is good.
