Not until 1970 was the unique Sleeping Bear Dunes area added to the National Park System.

This park consists of three separate areas, and encompasses a 35 mile stretch of Lake Michigan shoreline and a total of more than 70,000 acres. Its massive sand dunes are the most prominent features of the park, but you can also view beech and maple forests, lakes, streams, wetlands and historic farmlands.

    I got poison ivy every summer when I was a kid, living in Michgan. Alas, it's here in Georgia too.......Europe seems to be free of this pest! Yipee!

    I got poison ivy for the first time in my life in Maine this year. It was a small outbreak with little clear bubble blisters that break and spread. My case was mild, but it still is going from one spot or area to another.
