That's the NIPSCO plant in the background, with its starkly plain cooling tower from which plumes of emissions pour, decorating the winter sky. For a much more thorough and competent tour of the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, please visit Sam Barnett's VT pages. Thanks, Sam, for showing me around, and for taking this pic.
Northern Indiana Public Service Company has a large and imposing power plant at the eastern end of the Indiana Dunes. A few years ago German photographers Bernd and Hilda Becher published a series of photographic "essays" documenting different building "typologies." They were particularly fascinated by industrial building types like this one.
This was the odd lakescape in March, before the spring "break-up." The smokestacks of Gary are visible in the distance. more travel advice
It's impressive to walk all the way out there. more travel advice
