After visiting the nature center we walked a trail and up several steps to the top of a back dune (as opposed to a fore dune). This is where the following pictures were taken.
We then got back in the car to drive to the beach area. We first ate a picnic lunch in the picnic area up by the parking lot. Then we changed into our beach gear and spent a few hours enjoying Lake Michigan. After spending time in the water we decided to climb a huge dune. I decided that going up steps to climb a dune was much easier than climbing sand to get to the top of a dune. It was much more fun coming down, but the view at the top was well worth the climb. We are very much enjoying Michigan's natural beauty.
