Saint Francis River

Donor recognition opportunity available

Madison County, Missouri

One of the joys of living in Southeast Missouri is that no other place anywhere close to this part of the world has such a diverse and varied landscape. And there’s more: look at the remarkable colors in this rock formation, a vestige of the ancient Saint Francois Mountains. It tells the story of two widely separated geologic events blended into one feature that looks like this. Geologists have explained to me that something like this is remarkably rare.
