All right, I’ll admit that autumn is my favorite time in Indiana Dunes Country. There’s nothing better than hiking through wooded trails that are bursting with color on a bright, 65-degree day.
But another beautiful time is winter, when a blanket of snow covers the miles of trails in the Indiana Dunes and other great nature sites. And those trails that I hiked in the fall: they’re great for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and hiking in the winter.
