Tori Jane is a storm chaser, writer, photographer, and the village idiot - in that order. When she's not out and about dancing with the meanest storms on planet Earth for funsies she can be found wandering, shooting landscapes, writing, editing photos, and otherwise up to no good. Legend has it that she can also be occasionally spotted typing up short bios in the third person, but those rumors are unsubstantiated.
It is absolutely no secret whatsoever that Indiana Dunes National Park – the stunning National Park that was our very first of its kind – is an amazing place. If one were to ask why it’s such an amazing place, it might take an hour or so to list all the reasons – but at least that person would definitely want to go check it out once you were finished rattling them off. One of our favorite reasons to love Indiana Dunes NP is the fact that it’s home to a curiously diverse spectrum of flora, fauna, and geography; there are the famed dunes, yes, but did you know there are also no less than two unique bogs within the park that make for some of the best hiking in Indiana? Seriously: you’ll want to figure out a way to get yourself to the Pinhook Bog Upland Trail if you can. This is one peaceful hike in Indiana you’ll never forget (but you’ll keep coming back to):
