Last year, Adam and I went camping with his parents for the 4th of July Holiday weekend. Believe it or not, but Amtrak can take you from Chicago to New Buffalo, Michigan, which is right by the Warren Dune State Park.
We spent the weekend cooking over a campfire, laying out at the beach, and climbing around in the Dunes. It was just what I needed after a summer of being stuck inside a stuffy office 🙂 One night, Adam and I watched the sunset from on top of a dune!
Michigan gets added to the map!
