GRAND MARAIS, Mich. (WOOD- TV) – A second section of sand dune along Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore has eroded, according to the Nation Park Service.

Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore’s Facebook account posted about the “large-scale erosion” on Saturday, which is located on the Grand Sable Dunes along Lake Superior.

The damage is just a quarter of a mile west of major erosion that was discovered in early April at Log Slide Overlook. In that incident, a viewing platform slid approximately 100 feet down the dune.

Sightseers and hikers are being asked to stay away from the cliff of the dune.   

Photos here are about 1/4 mile west of the Log Slide.
