Sleeping Bear Dunes

I grew up in the thumb area of Michigan, well sort of, when we weren't in Florida.  But I didn't see the Michigan side of Lake Michigan until a few years ago.  I had seen Lake Huron, and Lake Erie, I had been to Mackinac Island - but we flew in and out of there.  A had heard of Sleeping Bear Dunes, and a couple of years ago I got a chance to see them one fall.  

Wow!  A rather big sand pile.  I usually think of graffiti as vandalism, but I was somehow enchanted by the inscription above.  There was another one, I didn't get a picture of that basically said that climbing back up the dune I thought I was going to die.  I didn't try. 

What do you think, vandalism or public service?  


  1. Funny and probably well worth heeding.

  2. Wow, what a neat place!

    I would go with the graffiti being a public service, as I found this article that states there are more emergency rescues here than at Yellowstone:



  3. Tastefully good humored vandalism.
