The first one is amazing color... I'll have to stop down there a little more often at sunset!

Is that at the wildlife refuge?

It's close by to the nature preserve that you were describing here (http://www.northeastfoto.com/forums/showthread.php?t=4665). If you were to take a right where you park at the nature preserve and go down Riverview Rd for about 1 1/2 miles (You'll pass the church that I photographed as well) and bear left at the Vischer Ferry Firehouse then you take your next left on to Ferry Dr (I believe that is the name of the road, I've lived in that area most of my life and never really paid much attention to street names). It's actually a dead end because there used to be a bridge that went accross the river a long time ago, but you can park there. That's where these pics were taken. If you were facing the river at that spot and took the trail on the left it would lead right into the nature preserve. If you took the trail on the right you would end up at a power plant.
