Sand in Your Shoes

One of the most dramatic set of sand dunes at St. Joseph Peninsula State Park. A storm cut into the dunes years ago leaving this dramatic stretch.These dunes almost totally bury adult pine trees as they "walk" across the peninsula. At 60' to 80' tall they are very impressive. What looks like brush on the tops of the dunes, is really full grown live oak trees, stunted by the salt in the soil.
