silver lake sand dunes / by Shelby Robinson

A few friends and I took a day-trip to the Silver Lake Sand Dunes State Park to adventure and hike back in early October. We were greeted by the Sun and the warm rolling hills and soft wind.

It's hard to believe that there are so many places right here in Michigan that must be explored. Sort of overwhelming, really.

We started at the pedestrian entrance and worked our way (slowly but surely) to Lake Michigan. The trek consisted of sandy hills and a treeline that meets an endless shore. So damn beautiful. At the end of the day my body hurt from walking and climbing and jumping, but it was so worth it.
