Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore

9/4/1995 After circling Michigan City a lot, got to Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore and stopped at Mt. Baldy - a huge dune slowly engulfing the forest. Climbed the dune (tiring!) for a nice view of Lake Michigan. Continued to the visitor center and took a short nature trail through the woods.

8/29/2010 ... east into Indiana and the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. We went to the VC and saw a nice film, then headed to Mt. Baldy and parked at the back of the huge dune. Given the increasingly hot weather we simply walked the easier (but still long) trail down to the lake. It was very pretty with beautiful blue/green color, and there were plenty of people there in beachwear, but we pretty much headed right back.
