TITLE: Dune at Indiana Dunes State Park on the shore of Lake Michigan. Sand dunes are found along the east shore of Lake Michigan.

The peculiar beauty of these dunes is in itself a great asset, to say nothing of the protection which they afford from the winds that blow off Lake Michigan during the winter months.
