I’ve been trying to take more pictures of my family adventures and personal adventures around national parks, state parks, forests, and other places. As my Sierra Club work begins to ramp up, I’ve noticed myself further drawn to document some of these places to help share them with others and hopefully encourage people to get outdoors more often.
I took these pictures on a day when the heat index was 104, so the family stayed behind at the Warren Dunes beach while I went on a four mile hike over the dunes and into a nearby forest. The sand was scalding hot, and all I’d brought were my hiking sandals, so eventually I had to turn around and head back to the lake. Not a bad option on a hot day.
