A Trip to Mount Baldy

A Trip to Mount Baldy






DctrSpott


As some of you may know, I've recently moved from Wilkes-Barre, PA to Laramie, WY. It's very nice here, thanks for asking. But we'll have much more time for that later.

I'm lucky enough to have many friends, and even luckier that the good lot of them have many good ideas and suggestions for me. One was to take a pit stop over to Mount Baldy, part of the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. This happened to be an excellent suggestion: the exit off I-80 to Mt Baldy was about 50 feet before a massive several hour traffic delay. You can see the general area right below, Mt Baldy is right below the 12 in the center!


So, what is Mt Baldy? It's a neat sand dune located right on Lake Michigan! You can climb to the top of this 126 ft (~40 m)...
 ...and get a spectacular view of the surrounding area!
 Mt Baldy is home to two Earthcaches, GC1MJW, The Wandering Dune, a cache explaining Mt Baldy's southbound migration... 
 ...and GC1V33W, The Hungry Lakeshore, explaining both the dune's migration, and some unique properties of the Great Lake.
  So, if you're passing through I-80, make sure to stop by this great national park! The rest of the park is home to many traditional, multi, and mystery caches for you to explore. The area makes for a great stop on I-80, whether for a few hours, or for some overnight camping. And, let's be fair... there isn't all that much on this stretch of Indiana anyway...
