    I didn’t know Indiana could have sinkholes, but then again, that’s about the only place in Indiana that has sand.

    Mt. Baldy is the steepest dune @ Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. I’ve climbed it many times. Happy thoughts for the boy and for his full recovery!

    It is not a sink hole I live 20 minutes away from here it is a sand hole the section of the beach where he was had been closed off for a restoration project he was playing in the hole when it collapsed
