Labor Day weekend

For the long weekend,
we went to Indiana Dunes State Park.
About ten miles south of
Michigan City Indiana.

Part of the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore.

The campground was very nice.

Large spacious lots.

The campground was booked, except for the lot next to us.

They redid the entire campground two years ago. New pads, paths, shower buildings.

But they only have electric hook-ups.

One unusual aspect of the park is the beach.

If you look south, you see all the smokestacks from the steel mills in Gary, Indiana. I forgot how close to Gary we were!

You come walking down to this beautiful beach, and then you see that!

And look to the north, you see the power plant for Michigan City!

Of course, I'm use to the wide expanse of the lake father north. Never been to Lake Michigan this far south!

But we had a great time. The sand was beautiful. and the weather was good!

And the Dunes were much larger than I expected after seeing some we have here in Michigan.

While we were so close to Chicago, And practicly next to the South Shore line train, We decided to go into Chicago for a day. I'll post about that later.
