Forested dunes give way to open sandy beaches and miles of coastline to explore. Warren Dunes State Park covers a large expanse of forested sand dunes, as well as several miles of Lake Michigan coastline. It's an interesting ecosystem, with small ponds held back within the dune fields, and constantly shifting open sand on the beach. Thought the dunes are held in place by the roots of trees and beach grasses, the wind is constantly seeking a purchase to move sand onshore. In places, this leads to "blowouts" where the dunes are breached and the sand blown inland.
