Ice and snow coat Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, providing the area with a sense of solitude and mystery that greatly contrast the area’s vitality during the summer months. MyNorth’s videographer, Kris Riley, visited the lakeshore, documenting the ever-changing ice formations along the Lake Michigan shoreline, the moon-like dunes and the expansive forests surrounding the trail. Watch and gain a new perspective of Sleeping Bear Dunes before strapping on a pair of snowshoes or cross-country skis to take to the dunes yourself.
