Sleeping Bear Dunes

These are some pictures from the Sleeping Bear Dunes. At one time, the Dunes looked like a Sleeping Bear and there is a Native American Legend which states that the Dune was created to commerate a mother bear trying to escape from a forest fire. She swam across Lake Michigan with her two cubs. She waited on the shore but her two cubs got tired and drowned. The Great Spirit formed the Manitou Islands to mark the spot where they died. The dunes were created where she fell asleep.

This is a shot of one of the dunes and the Manitou Islands.

A shot as the sun is starting to come down.
