The rugged dune formation rises 260 feet above the lake and offers spectacular views. The two RV Gypsies decided to join all the barefooted people and climb to the top. They discovered that the sand was very soft and it was much more difficult than they imagined, so the two RV Gypsies took forever to get to the top of the sand dune, especially Lee.

The two RV Gypsies got almost to the top of the sand dune before they needed a rest.

Karen Duquette got half-way up the sand dune and took a break. It was so much steeper than it looked.

From a spot almost to the top, Karen Duquette photographed a teen-age girl grabbing a tree for support because she was so tired from the climb. Even the children and teens had a hard time climbing this sand dune.
