In honor of the efforts to pass Proposition 21, I thought I'd share a photo from a recent trip my family made to Indiana Dunes State Park. To me, this place encompasses why national and state parks are so important. Not only has Indiana Dunes allowed one of the Midwest's most beautiful spots to be accessible to all who want to visit, but it has preserved this area in a way that ensures its fragile ecosystem will thrive.

The fences in the picture above allow people the chance to hike up the massive dunes, while protecting most of the native grasses that grow all over the dunes and prevent their erosion.
