I love to drive. The rhythm of the tires on the road, changing vistas and the sound of the wind with the windows down.
Driving across America on I-90 takes you through Ohio toward Chicago. I stopped about an hour east of Chicago in Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore and tented at the State Park, a bargain at $17.50 per night. The park was beautiful and clean and just a stones throw from the sand dunes created by Lake Michigan.
Indiana Dunes has several beautiful hikes that overlook Lake Michigan and the sand dunes. Trail 10 is rated one of the best hikes in America. Unfortunately, I twisted my ankle on an apple, go figure, before I left and had to settle for the 2 mile trail. The trails are sand so wear appropriate footwear if you decide to try the hikes.
There is a beautiful beach along Lake Michigan. Edgar was not welcome on the beach.
