The warmest day of 2013 so far allowed us to hike for a few hours at the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. Each winter, the Central Beach parking lot is closed, and the beach can only be accessed by walking from Mt. Baldy or the neighborhoods surrounding the beach. We found a convenient log and used it as a bridge over Kintzele Ditch, allowing us to explore Central Beach for the first time in a few months. We began our trek at Mt. Baldy, and walked to the end of Central Beach - a 3.5 mile round trip -- probably double that if you count all of the meandering along the beach!
