Sleeping Bear Dunes is a National Lakeshore located along Lake Michigan in the upper part of the lower peninsula of Michigan. It features massive sand dunes along the lakeshore.
This park is one of the great jewels of the midwest. The scenery is spectacular, providing numerous places for enjoying it. The 2 mile + hike each way to the lake through the sand was the hardest hike I have ever done. It goes up and down the dunes, with poor footing. I was exhausted by the time I got back to the car.
