Ice Covered Break Wall 004
The wind was strong enough that the icicles on the break wall cables formed diagonally instead of straight down. I was hoping to come back and take another photo at sunrise or sunset but just after I took these photos two young men on fat tired bikes rode out on the break wall and proceeded to smash all of the beautiful icicles.
What a disappointment. Many of Grand Marais’ visitors could have had the opportunity to marvel at their beauty for several days. I talked to the young men afterwards and they apologized. They didn’t realize that they were doing anything wrong and just stated that it was fun to smash icicles.
