River's Edge Trail and Rogue River Greenway

October 29, 2017

As daylight savings time approaches and autumn colors begin to fade, it was time for one more  hike to enjoy the color and sunshine of autumn.

Time for some hiking along the Rogue River at Valley of the Rogue State Park
We drove highway 99 from Medford to Valley of the Rogue State Park so we could enjoy a last autumn drive only to find that most of our drive was in fog.  As a matter of fact, our entire hike on the River's Edge trail and along the Rogue River Greenway to our turnaround at the Depot Street Bridge was in fog and clouds.

Adding a little excitement for our hike.

Despite the fog, the Rogue River is still beautiful with some autumn color added.

On our return hike though, the fog and clouds burned off and the sun and blue sky took over.

Blue sky and autumn yellow!

We saw lots of autumn yellow, especially on the River's Edge trail through Valley of the Rogue State Park.

Yellow, yellow, yellow!

It was a very nice 6.8 mile hike and we enjoyed what will probably be our last autumn hike with color.  Hope you got our to enjoy the season with a walk in the neighborhood, at a park or on a trail.
