Traveling Ted is a blog that takes readers along on my adventures hiking, canoeing, skiing, and international backpacking. Many blogs focus on one aspect of backpacking, but I tackle both the outdoor adventure side and international exploration as well.

Sharing is caring!

Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore

Beach along Lake Michigan in Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore

I have just returned from two days in the gorgeous Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore in northern Michigan.  This spot has been on my radar for a couple of years as I have visited other dune parks, and I have heard this is the most spectacular. I definitely agree it is the most sensational of the dunes areas I have been to, and I definitely will go back. Here is a photo from a beach I hiked to where I was the only person within five miles. I will be sharing this hike as well as many other tips and photos in the coming weeks.

Stay tuned,


The goal of Traveling Ted is to inspire people to outdoor adventure travel and then provide tips on where and how to go.
