One of the most beautiful sites in Michigan, Sleeping Bear Dunes is named after the Ojibwe legend of the sleeping bear. According to the legend, an enormous forest fire on the western shore of Lake Michigan drove a mother bear and her two cubs into the lake for shelter, determined to reach the opposite shore. When the mother bear reached the eastern shore, she waited on the top of a high bluff but her exhausted cubs never joined her for they had drowned in the lake. The mother bear stayed and waited in hopes that her cubs would finally appear. Impressed by the mother bear's determination and faith, the Great Spirit created two islands (North and South Manitou islands) to commemorate the cubs, and the winds buried the sleeping bear under the sands of the dunes where she waits to this day.
