Before our road trip to Houston we had some friends visiting from Portland, Oregon. We thought it was a good opportunity to do something Derek and I had never done before. So, we decided to pack a picnic lunch and drive out to the Indiana Dunes. After more than an hour of sitting in rush hour Chicago traffic (somehow lunch turned into dinner) we finally made it to the dunes. We only had enough time to eat dinner, climb Mount Baldy, and walk along the beach. It was perfect timing, however, because we left right around sunset. The slight cloud cover from the quick rainfall we had made for a perfect sunset over Lake Michigan.
