Indiana Dunes State Park

Chesterton, IN

We drove through rain most of the day to arrive in Chesterton, Indiana. This is a great park on Lake Michigan with nice trails along the sand dunes. We awoke to bright sunshine on Wednesday and decided to stay another night so we could hike during the day. We found a 5.5 mile hike partly through the woods and partly on the beach. We felt like we had the whole beach to ourselves as we never met anyone else. It reminded me of walking on Duxbury Beach as a teenager. (John asked if I could remember that far back!) The hike up the dunes was not easy as anyone who has walked on sand knows. One trail we took had lots of stairs (see picture) and needless to say we were out of breath when we finished.
