Ice Caves 001
It has been five years since Lake Superior has had enough ice to allow access to the Wisconsin sea caves. The caves are located in the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore just east of Cornucopia. When the ice is sufficient to allow access to the caves, the Park Service publicizes it through television, newspapers and a call-in ice line.
We thought there would be a few people at the caves last Friday but were not expecting hundreds. Our first view of the shoreline reminded me of the Golden Staircase in the movie Klondike.
