During the trip, we learned that Sand Dunes have four major characteristics: (a) Backdunes (b) Trough (c) Foredunes, and (d) Beach. We hiked through Backdunes to Trough and reached on the top of Sand Dune. We had the first glimpse of the Parabolic dune and were pretty dumbfounded when we saw Lake Michigan facing toward us. The Parabolic dune is formed by the wind that moves sand through an eroded corridor such as a path. The wind pushes sand many yards up the slope and creates a saddle-shaped dune. This process takes many years. My professor and friends found it befitting to sing the first verse of “How Great Thou Art” standing on top of the dune to glorify God for this breathtaking view. Singing does not come to me naturally but I enjoyed their singing. It was serene. We experienced the beauty and grandeur of God’s creation. I also had my first Dune ride in a buggy. We felt butterflies in our stomach when the buggy followed the whorl up and down passages in the dune. I would recommend my other friends who had not been here before to come to try it. It is worth the drive.
