Another Grand Sable Dunes Hike
Yesterday I parked at Sable Falls and hiked west. The ground was mostly snow covered until I got to the dunes. There was debris everywhere, including several trees I had to climb over or walk around. The snow was also inconsistent: hard in one spot and post-holing soft in others. I was relieved to finally get to the sand! It was the warmest day of the year so far here in Grand Marais, with temperatures in the mid-50s. Some spots in the dunes had temperatures in the 70s. What a beautiful day!
