Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore

By Michael Wells
November 11, 2011

Every year here in Beautiful Michigan, our family heads northward in the state to Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore/Park. Been visiting since a kid, now age 59. Traversing the giant sandunes and hiking through the varied trails provide fitness enthusiasts, photographers, and birders all they could hope for. Once at the top of the Climb Hill one can see Lake Michigan to the West with Manitou Islands clearly visible and looking East awe-inspiring Upper and Lower Glen Lakes seem as if you can touch them and so radiant with the vivid blue water color! Truly an enjoyable time for all ages at this unique geographical park. And educational I might add with the friendly help and tips from Park Rangers.
