The dune areas of Rhode Island's Moonstone Beach are known for their protection. There are times of the year when one cannot access the outlying areas at all.

There is an isthmus in these dunes between the ocean waves and Trustom Pond. Trustom Pond is actually a coastal lagoon and is a National Wildlife Refuge.

Several geographic features are combined in one place. This means that there are some unique views. Among these are the seagrasses that form. In the fall, they take on a drier stalk-like quality. And in the calm of Trustom Pond, these tall grasses filter the late afternoon sun. The eccentric view is enhanced by the salt mist of the pounding waves on the other side of the isthmus.

Fall color comes in all forms in Rhode Island. Sometimes, it takes on light brown and amber mixed with green in the heather and reeds.
