Sleeping Bear Dunes

Sleeping Bear Dunes is a National Park located on Lake Michigan west of Traverse City. At the park there are two paths to reach Lake Michigan. One drops a steep 500 feet from the top ending at the lake. It's lots of fun going down and can be fun or not so fun coming back up depending on how fit you are. The other route is a less strenuous 2 mile walk up and down the dunes.

The dunes are covered with beach grass which is tall grass that grows in clumps.

    1. It's one of my husband's favorite forms of exercise. One time when we visited there was a college football team there to get in shape.

  2. Sand dunes are great fun for kids, we have them at one of our beaches too, lovely and safe when the kids run down too fast and fall! Thanks you for sharing on Country Kids
