Another nice hike to do during the fall time at the Shenandoah National Park is the Rose River Trail. I went there last year also in October, a week after my hike to the Hawksbill Summit. Since the elevation for this trail is lower than Hawksbill Summit, the fall foliage was still closer to the peak along this trail. The beginning part of the trail was a walk through the woods, then followed with a walk along a river for quite some time, There were many small waterfalls to see along the way. The photo below was taken around the beginning of the hike. This was my first attempt at HDR photography — couldn’t resist given the wonderful colors of the foliage and the nice morning lighting.
