Indiana Dunes

America’s newest National Park takes us to Indiana, where on the shores of Lake Michigan an increasingly fragile ecosystem is maintained and protected.

On February 15th, 2019, Donald Trump officially elevated the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore to National Park status, making it the 61st and newest member of this exclusive club.   

Located just outside of Gary, Indiana (and about an hours drive from Chicago), this gerrymandered strip of wilderness protects a series of rolling sand dunes along the shores of Lake Michigan.   Here are my photos from my recent visit:
