Recently, I had the opportunity to hike out into Sleeping Bear Dunes for a day, with my wife to accompany me. Being a hot sunny day, we slathered on the sunscreen, bug spray, and packed some bottles of water. The water and sunscreen were a big help out in the dunes.
After hiking our way over to the shoreline, and following it for a while, we were lucky enough to stumble on the "Ghost Forest". Skeletons of dead trees littered the dunes among the windswept sands. Ancient trees, buried for years have started to appear as erosion works on the dunes. It is amazing to see these old trees and to imagine the forest that was there at one time.
After a couple hours of exploring, the heat was getting to us and we decided to head back. I can only imagine how beautiful the Ghost Forest is in the evening and plan to go back soon!
