Sand Stream and Strata

This past winter was rough on the Indiana Dunes. A November storm eroded a lot of the beach area including the dunes which normally stand at least 100 feet from Lake Michigan. The sands were deposited along the shore and along the bottom of the dunes where they continue to be shaped by the wind and rain.

Here along Kintzele Ditch in LaPorte County, the wind and fluctuating water levels carved interesting, horizontal patterns in the sand.
