Located along the shore of Lake Michigan in southwestern Michigan, Warren Dunes State Park was a favorite place to visit in the summer because of its beach along the lake. We went there often when we lived in South Bend, IN which is about 35 miles away. However, we also liked to visit in the winter. Back then, the snow began to fall in earnest in early December, the lake froze over, and we didn’t see the ground or the water again until at least April. This photo, taken in the late 1970s, is of snow and ice, not sand, at the dunes.
I’m in the process of digitizing old photos and slides and thought I’d share a few from time to time.
