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.

Along the Empire Dunes Trail in Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore is a great overlook of the Empire Dunes and this beach below along Lake Michigan. The trail is just outside the small town of Empire, Michigan and the trail is less than a mile to this fabulous overlook of the lake and the dunes, which this park has in an abundance.


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