This past July, Christine and Jasper Mallard visited Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore in Northern Michigan. A highlight of their trip to the “Unsalted Coast” was the Dunes Climb and Hike, a 3.5-mile (round trip) hike to Lake Michigan, which starts with a 100-foot dune climb (pictured). Traveling up and down many steep sand dunes, the rest of the hike never gets quite as steep as the first part. The reward at the end of the hike is running down the steep dune without worry if you take a tumble—it’s only sand after all!
