Just outside Ludington, on M 116, you won’t find many high water or snow driven signs on the roadway but you will find these signs about drifting sand.  The reason why is simple and that is because for about a six mile stretch, there is nothing but this highway amd ,miles and miles of sand.  Just one dune to your left separates you and Lake Michigan while the other side has hundreds o acres of dunes and shrubs.

So on high wind days, when the breezes whip Lake Michigan into a frenzy, sand  also comes ashore and pelts this highway.  To my knowledge, it has never drifted over but it does get rather interesting.  Worse still, if you plan on running the beach on those days, you will get a faceful of stinging sand.  Even so, it is one of the best drives in the area as just about anywhere you park, that stretch of the road becomes your own private beach.

Just a word of caution, though, watch out for that drifiting sand and be careful out there, eh?
