Playing on the beach I didn't know about.
At the top of a dune with a great view of the lake.
The great thing about hiking there was how varied this trail was. We had sandy dunes that were like climbing beaches, and shadowed humid forests with a tiny buggy trail to make it through, and boardwalk planks. It was supposed to be the trail most representative of what the park as a whole is like.
The baby hiked about a mile and a half, but most of the time he was in arms or on my back.
Despite the heat, it was actually a lovely day. My 7 year old hiked about 6 miles and thoroughly impressed me - I had been a little nervous about her doing the whole thing, but she was totally a trooper.
All done. Whew!
All in all I had fun and I'd love to go back...but probably on a milder day! It was $12 for us out of staters but I think my best friend only had to pay $7. Highly recommend it - and if I'd had a swimsuit, the beach was GORGEOUS!
