Lake Superior Ice Caves

( Apostle Islands National Seashore )

March 2014

This was the year that the Ice Caves got discovered. You can probably blame social media for that. Oh, and global warming/climate change, too. The numerous Arctic Vortices this year kept Lake Superior frozen solid and provided an easy road to the caves...

Most of these people were obviously "city people" who weren't used to walking on ice and snow on a frozen lake in 20mph winds. But god bless 'em all. They were here with their extra-long X-country ski poles! Where the hell were you ?

The way back was into a brisk west wind. But the caves provided shelter.

The kids figured that out right away.

Some adults did, too.
