____________
Indiana Dunes consists of 2,182 acres of primitive, beautiful, historic and unique Hoosier landscape. It lies at the north end of State Road 49 in Porter County, and includes more than three miles of beautiful beach along Lake Michigan’s southern shore. In the early 1900s scientists, recreationists and nature enthusiasts, recognizing the value and potential of the Indiana dunes area, fought to have the region preserved. As a result, in 1925, the state park was established.

Large sand dunes, located beyond the entire shoreline, have taken thousands of years to form, and tower nearly 200 feet above Lake Michigan. A wide range of habitats and plant species are found in the park, with vegetation stabilizing some of the sand. These habitats provide homes for many types of plants and animals. The lake also provides habitat for many aquatic species, as well as a constantly changing fishery.

CHARLES MOUND- NATIONAL SUMMIT DAY! (for approved UNH members only) SATURDAY, AUGUST 3, 2019 AT 10 AM – 5 PM

Charles Mound Rd, Scales Mound, IL 61075

Charles Mound Rd, Scales Mound, IL 61075: Celebrate National Summit Day by hiking to the highest point in Illinois! Afterwards, we will trek to Apple River Canyon to finish the day up! Hey Nerds! This hike is for APPROVED UNH group members ONLY! Heads up: - Approval of members in this group is at the discretion of our admins and moderators. -You are not required to stay with the group but it's hike at your own risk!! From Summit Post: Charles Mound is located in the northwest corner of the state, near the town of Galena, and is less than 1/2 mile from the Illinois/Wisconsin border. Unlike the rest of the state, Northwestern Illinois was spared by the glacial activity that flattened most of the Midwest. The area actually has some rolling hills, limestone bluffs and some very nice scenery. Interesting fact: The Sears Tower in Chicago rises 1,450 feet above ground with a ground elevation of 583 feet. That puts the top of the Sears Tower at an elevation of 2,033 feet above sea level, nearly 800 feet higher than Charles Mound. However, it is obviously not considered to be the state highpoint since it is man made.
