I visited RB Winter State Park in Union County on Monday afternoon, October 18th, and found the fall foliage conditions to be a mixed bag, depending on where you were in the park.
Around the park office itself, fall foliage was vibrant and plentiful.
Around the beach area, there were also some extra-colorful maples.
Near the often-photographed spillway, where pine trees prevail, there was less color, as you’d expect.
There was a nice afternoon sun glow to the pines, however, which made for pleasant photos.
The park was not busy on this Monday afternoon, but those folks who were there got to soak up a fantastic fall day.
I hiked a short distance on the Mid State Trail to check out the fall foliage situation on the southern end of the park.
Around the perimeter of Halfway Lake I observed that most of the maples were either at or even a little past peak, so if you want to see them in their autumn glory, you best get there this week.
I drove up to the scenic overlook above the park, along McCall Dam Road.
This was the best spot of the day for fall foliage views at RB Winter State Park.
Looking out over Halfway Lake and RB Winter State Park on this chilly October afternoon, it truly felt like the first “real” day of autumn and I was glad for the chance to experience it first-hand.
