Day One in Michigan--Exploring the Dunes!

Salutations, friends of the internet! After driving for nearly ten hours last Wednesday, we arrived at our campground in Michigan. We got there around nine at night, so we had to pitch our tent in the dark! After that we went right to sleep. The next day, we went over to Sleeping Bear Dunes!

This is the view of the first tier of the dune from the parking lot. It's a GINORMOUS pile of sand! It's crazy how big it is.

This is the view from the top of the first tier. There were still two more levels, so to speak, that you could climb up in this particular spot.

Here I am on top of the first tier! That's Little Glen Lake behind me, with Big Glen Lake off in the distance behind it. 

Here's the view from the top level! It was like standing on top of a mountain. Everything was so beautiful!

Here's some more of the dunes. We didn't hike that on that day, though. 

Here I am on top of the top level looking out across the dunes. What an amazing thing to see!

I had so much fun going up the dunes! On our way back down, we dug holes in the sand and buried each other! This sand is better than at the beach; it goes on forever! Stay tuned to see the rest of my posts about Michigan!
This has been Dani, dabbling at Sleeping Bear Dunes. Over and out!
