Yep, once is enough for me. I do admit tht the view from the top is nothing short of spectacular. I can still remember it from that climb back in 1970.

I was at the Dunes when I was 17 or 18, a bunch of us went camping. We found it difficult enough to get the Jeep to go up the dunes, let alone hiking it. (The trick was to let a lot of air out of the tires, or something like that. I commend you! I can't imagine hiking it.

I was talking about this camping trip to my brother a few weeks ago, he was among the group of friends. I swear we were at Sleeping Bear and he now says it was a different dune. I'm not sure I'll ever know who is right!


Tim-Aw...c'mon. Don't you want to try climbing it again for old time's sake? :lol:

Becks-I suspect you were at a different dune, although maybe still in the general area? I don't think I remember seeing anyone allowed to -drive- on the dunes, especially as it's a National Lakeshore and subject to certain protective measures.
Maybe you were out at the dunes closer to Ludington? I know they have dune rides there.


Beautiful photos. And congrats to you for accomplishing something you've wanted to do for so long. :)


Gypsy-Thanks! It really is a great view, you just have to work a little to get up to it doing the dune climb.

Becks-I watched a vintage Michigan travel video the other day (from 1949). They did, indeed, have dune rides at that time...but I don't remember ever seeing them at that particular dune in all the years I've been up there--and neither does Tim (who started going up to that area as a teenager in the late 60s/very early 70s
