The Sleeping Bear Dunes Lake Michigan shoreline has a stark beauty that encourages the mind to wander and our feet to do the same. On windy mornings, the dunes are a weather vane, indicating wind currents in the form of rippled sand. When hoof or paw prints are blurred by blowing sand, there remains a hint of a passing creature. And the complicity of the lake breezes helping cover animals’ tracks, feels like a mystery in which nature aids and abets the wild things. Knowing a deer or bobcat or other denizen may have detected and fled your proximity is thrilling.
