Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore

This was a driving day so you will get more pictures and fewer words. That may make some people pleased. It will shorten my time at the keyboard.

We left later than planned, deciding to sleep in a bit. We hit the road by 9:30, driving through Wisconsin and Illinois. The Illinois toll road had 35 miles of construction. While it slowed us down, it seemed to divert knowledgeable drivers to other roads. The construction area was not overly crowded.

Chicago area was heavy with trucks and speeding cars. We actually encountered only a few really congested areas despite driving through the area between 3-5 pm.

We were able to make our one planned stop, the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore before the visitor center closed at 6 pm. We then spent 1.5 hours just sitting on the beach and watching the sun set.

    Love the sunset pics and that you took time to just sit – somewhere other than the car.
