Indiana Dunes and trip West

On Monday, we spent the day at the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. I, Cheryl remember visiting here while in High School and then again while living in South Bend. The waves were really high and the views beautiful. We could even see the skyscrapers of Chicago! Jim wasn’t able to walk all the trails since they were soft sand. Rough going even for me. Mt. Baldy dune is very large and being protected because it is “on the move.” The next day we crossed the Mississippi river again, on our way west and stopped for a picnic.
Today we are encountering the heat wave! Will be 110o with heat index, UGH!! “Dangerous heat”, as the weather lady just said.
