Edward's Annual Dune Climb Challenge

This past weekend, we went up to Sleeping Bear Dunes in northern Michigan where John's sister's family has a cottage. We went to the steep, steep 450 foot dune of the Pierce Stocking drive of the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore and Edward set out to break his record from the previous year - 7:39 was his time to beat!

Edward and cousin Brian run down the dune.

The rest of us go over to the overlook to watch them far below.

They look like ants down in Lake Michigan.

The scenery is amazing!

And Edward made it in 7 minutes, 15 seconds this year!

The sunset was more like a bright glow on the water and by the time it got down there, it was behind the clouds. Still so beautiful!
