The young woman on the left looked familiar. Jocelyn asked if she worked downtown in Kirksville. She said no but then we remembered she was one of the eight passengers with us on the little Cape Air plane we took from St. Louis. Turns out she was our tour guide on the boat ride at a Thousand Lakes. Her name is Emily.

Thousand Hills is located at 20431 State Highway 157, just south of Highway 6 on the northwest end of Kirksville. The marina offers boat rentals including paddle boats, canoes, kayaks, pontoon boats, fishing boats, and ski boats. Cabins are available to rent and there are plenty of beautiful hiking trails. Located on Forest Lake, there is easy access for all types of recreational activities for the whole family. Rock formations containing historic Native American carvings can be found in a sheltered exhibit. Visitors can walk on a path along the shelter walls to read information about the petroglyphs and then match up their symbols on the rocks below.
