As part of Vermillion's celebration of the Lewis and Clark expedition, members of the South Dakota Canoe Association and the Living River Group of the Sierra Club paddled the Missouri River Saturday morning. The canoeists began their journey at the Highline Landing (also known as Myron Grove) and came back to shore at the Clay County Park.

The journey took a little longer than two hours, with a stop at Goat Island. At Clay County Park, participants received a free pasta lunch served by Missouri River Expeditions. At right, a group of walkers set out from Cotton Park for its journey to Spirit Mound. Although the Clay County region has changed much since Lewis and Clark visited here, the walk was designed to help participants get a chance to share some of the same experiences as the explorers.
