Even A Gloomy Day Can Be Fun
With the Des Moines River low, it was fun to go down near Keosauqua and explore the sand bars and small streambeds in the state park. Dogs are wound up with lots of energy to hike for a few hours and hope to find treasure. This is at an area that was used as a river crossing along the Mormon Trail and I visit here often. In Keosauqua is a favorite family ran ice cream stand where one can get black raspberry soft serve always. The entire county is void of commercial fast food restaurants and doesn't have any stoplights, so is a very laid back area to explore. There is a charm with this river and I have explored it for hundreds of miles upstream at Fort Dodge, and all the way to the Mississippi River by kayak and canoe.
