Remark: Sand dunes are found along the east shore of Lake Michigan. The theory is that these dunes trace their history back to the glacial period and were forced up by the action of the ice. 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.
