One of the things that I wanted to do was the “3 Dune Challenge”. You hiked the 3 tallest dunes in the park. Hiking in sand is much different than hiking in the woods with rock or dirt as the ground surface!
|It started out fine...|
|and quickly inclined!|
|We had beautiful views|
|And could even see Chicago in the distance (look hard!)|
|We "bagged" peaks|
|If you could call 184 ft a peak!|
|We climbed a gazillion steps|
|To our last "peak" at 192 feet!|
We checked out the beach of Lake Michigan…
And it really looked like any other beach….until this...
|What?! Industry + beach = not good|
|It is a very popular beach.|
|A naked, headless mannequin? It never came off of the car|
Time to head further east!!
