The Wonders of Ice!

Lake Michigan is 87% frozen and still freezing. This has been one of the coldest winters in history for Wisconsin. Lake Superior is frozen to the point that people can walk on the ice to view the Lake Superior Ice Caves.

In Wisconsin when the weather is extremely cold the Great Lakes freeze. When that happens we are able to see the beautiful  Lake Superior Ice Caves ...Apostle Islands National Lakeshore.

Cave ice that can only be seen when the water of Lake Superior freezes hard enough for us to walk on the ice to the  caves. The caves are located near Bayfield in northern Wisconsin on the shores of Lake Superior.





Gosh ....  Mother Nature is beautiful!  So I guess this cold severe weather is necessary to remind us that life with no cold would not be a good thing and can be beautiful!

These are not photos that I took - they are photos shared by others.

  4. That is so cool. We had something sort of similar up in New Hampshire that we went to a few weeks ago. It's amazing what can be created out of ice!
