The whole idea behind going to Michigan was to wade around in the mud like an overgrown hog on a hot summer's day. But when David Obney of the Moonlight Stompers told us there were also dunes there, our curiosity was piqued.
With just a little hemming and hawing, we ended up on the Silver Lake Dunes in Mears, Michigan. The Dunes are sandwiched between Lake Michigan and Silver Lake and offer fun for everyone. From crazy steep ascents and descents to more mild hills, this ended up being a nice break from our planned wallowing.
