Islands are Treasures of the River

Missouri River islands are not the palm tree variety, but some have “sand in your toes” beaches and all have more peace and solitude than you’re likely to find in coconut country. Many of the river’s islands can only be reached by boat, but there are two at Pierre that even have parking lots., At LaFramboise Island (a short walk from downtown) and Farm Island (east of town along Highway 34) are quiet cottonwood forests with good hiking and biking paths. Lewis and Clark must have had a good day at LaFramboise because the explorers nicknamed it “Good Humored Island.” May you feel the same.
