Named by Lewis and Clark

Sauvie Island was originally named Wappato by Lewis and Clark. It wasn't later that it began to be called Sauvé Island after Laurent Sauvé, a French dairyman who worked for the Hudson Bay Company. Sauve established a dairy on the island. Over the years Wappato became Wapato and Sauvé became Sauvie.

In any case, today I journeyed to Sauvie Island, a short trip north of Portland for a walk around Virginia Lake, a part of the Wapato Greenway. What had been overcast in Portland was definitely fog on Sauvie Island.
