Took my grandchildren to a picnic site on the Missouri River. They loved it! It was uncharacteristically warm in November this year!

Great river for boating and sandbar activities. Traveling up and down this river is a great way to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery. We have boated and enjoyed the sandbars for decades, along with some camping ⛺️ on the sandbars also.

Just like the Battleship (BB64) this splendid River is still going strong today ! Has been the lifeblood for generations of Native Americans and sped Lewis & Clark on their journey to the Pacific !

We drove across the bridge at Bismarck, it was a nice bridge. used a different Bridge on the way back, not quite as nice but still a pretty cool bridge. touched the water later and it was cool and seemed very clean. Nice River.

Fished the Missouri river for Walleye. Was very cold but the state Game and Fish department had the ramps out. What a place to come and spend time on the water.
