Whitefish Dunes State Park, Door County, Wisconsin

Whitefish Dunes State Park preserves the most substantial
sand dunes on the western shore of Lake Michigan.
The dunes are covered with thick vegetation which makes it difficult to see the sand.
Instead the dunes appear to be tree-covered mounds of sand.
The park contains numerous displays including this replica of a summer home
from the Woodland Indians of the period 500-900 ad
 Along the trail we saw columbine in bloom.
Also blooming beside the trail are these Thimbleberry flowers.
After giving their Sheltie an opportunity to "herd" the waves,
Anna and Joyce pose beside their very-tired Sheltie.
