Stepstone Falls is Rhode Islands largest and only waterfall. At 10 feet tall it is small, but it is very pretty. When we went the water was very low, so it did not look like it normally does. When the water is higher, the falls flow over these large granite slabs in wide sheaths, but what we saw was the water actually flowing under the rocks in some spots.
The colors in the trees were also very nice.
Stepstone Falls goes over three main drops. Just upstream of it is a pretty little bridge.
It was a very nice spot to spend some time. While we were there, we also found this cute little caterpillar, and this rock that looked like it was eating a tree.
Next, we headed over to Jamestown on Conanicut Island. We visited a few spots on the island including a spot that was featured in a recent movie we really like, Moonrise Kingdom.
We also went to the Beavertail Light. Magnus and Dana enjoyed playing around on the rocks. In the second picture, Magnus is trying to convince Ruth to jump so he can catch her.
The Jamestown Windmill and a view of the Newport Bridge were some other nice spots.
