It’s been a gloomy few weeks. The sky has been steadily overcast, and it’s rained nearly everyday.
But of course, the St. Croix River is still beautiful.
Below are photos and videos shared online recently highlighting autumn’s wonderful sights.
The colors are still good in the St. Croix Valley, and this weekend is looking like the best one to take a look at the leaves — before winter arrives.

My next stop exploring the greater upper-midwest area brought me to the beautiful St. Croix River. Beautiful country, nice folks too. pic.twitter.com/12GU1NE6eC

Rare afternoon on the St. Croix river. It was a very warm and muggy afternoon that got hit by a sharp cold front. Resulting in a blanket of fog over the water. Usually see fog late at night or early morning before the sunrise. Never at 4pm. #stcroixriver pic.twitter.com/eTdnBZhGoD

A11. Here's an "old man" taken along the St Croix River in Wisconsin, looking into the Minnesota side. I took this 2 days ago standing at the western terminus of the Ice Age NST. The old man can be seen just above the red sumac in the right side of the photo. #parkchat pic.twitter.com/j7yddHdWZK
