Climbing Mount Baldy

Saturday night, the folks ate at Wagner Ribs.  Mama was excited to eat there because the restaurant has been voted the best ribs in the region since 1993. Mama was not disappointed.  She was really delighted when she saw they had a baby back rib/ribeye combo. It was a lot of food, but since the folks didn't eat lunch, she went for it.  She ended up bringing home half the ribeye.  We had some and then the folks had the rest for breakfast. The baby back ribs were excellent.  The ribeye was better than most.

Dad's Meal - Crab Cakes and Baby Back Ribs

Dad's side item - Cornbread Cakes
This was one of the best meals that the folks have had in a while.  The one complaint they had was that the salad came out with the appetizer and then the rest of the meal came out immediately.  They like their food to come out slower than that.  They would love to eat here again.

Sunday, after our failure to walk to the beach, the folks went on their own hike. They climbed Mount Baldy.  It is roughly 125 feet tall and is the largest "living" dune in the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. As it moves, it buries everything in its path, including trees.  It is moving approximately five feet a year.  They are predicting that the parking lot will be covered in five years.

It was a tough climb to the top. There were some people who didn't make it.  Mama didn't know if she was going to make it.  It was a hard climb uphill, but walking in deep sand made it even harder.

The following pictures are from the top of Mount Baldy.

Going down is so much easier.

There are so many trails here. If you like to hike, this is the place to come.  We have ten trails in our park, but there are many more outside the park.  It's a great place to visit!

Hi Friends! Yes, I know it has been a long time since I updated all of you.  Mom heard someone say that no one really cares when a blogger...
