Before the Crash

Bubbles, unlikely to last long on the edge of the lakeshore before the crash of the refreshing waves from Lake Michigan.

Unlikely Tour Guide

As I was hiking, a deer popped up from behind me.  Instead of heading back into the woods as deer usually do, this one led the way along the trail for about half a mile and didn’t seem to mind that I was there.

It was only when someone came upon us from the opposite direction that it went back into the trees.  Sure enjoyed the unlikely tour guide while it stayed.

Winter at the Dunes

7

Welcome to winter at the Indiana Dunes State Park.  As you arrive, you may be greeted by a frozen Lake Michigan covered by shelf ice.

Ice on the Lake

Since walking onto shelf ice is extremely dangerous and not recommended, you may want to venture to the top of Devil’s Slide.

Once you make it to the top, sledding is allowed from here.  Or, just enjoy the view of Lake Michigan and the beach house from the top of the sand dune.

Cross-country skiing is also possible on most of the trails or bring your snowshoes along. Pick up a trail map at the park office or print from the Indiana Dunes State Park website.  Stop by and experience winter at the Indiana dunes.  Camp grounds are open all year round.
