Sleeping bear dunes
Transcript of Sleeping bear dunes
How the area got formed
The hills, dunes, valleys, shoreline, small lakes, and streams through out the area were formed by the powerful earth-moving forces of ice, wind, and water over time.
Three unique features.
Lake Michigan was formed by glaciers and physical weathering. This is why it is extremely cold. When the glaciers melted it caused this lake to form. So, high temperatures is what caused the formation of Lake Michigan.
The South Manitou island was formed from a glacier. Physical weathering was the cause of this island. The high temperature was what caused the rocks to break apart, to form this island.
North Manitou Island was formed from physical weathering.
The weathering was done by temperature changing in the rock. Which caused the rock to break apart. It was somewhat assisted with water.
The island was formed by Glaciers.
