One of the most unique places in Indiana is Mount Baldy on the southern rim of Lake Michigan.
It has been six months since little Nathan Woessner was rescued from beneath the sands of Mount Baldy, but the story isn't forgotten. Nor is it over.
Visitors to Indiana's latest nature preserve will have to work a little harder than most sight-seers to take in the attraction.
