- For the first time in five years, you can visit the Apostle Islands sea caves bywalking across frozen Lake Superior.The ice is solid, although you might be able to feel it moving on the waterbelow it. Apostle Islands National Lakeshore superintendent Bob Krumanaker says theexperience of walking on a frozen Great Lake is remarkable, both physically andpsychologically.
The mainland caves are 18 miles west of Bayfield. With the current conditions,the National Park Service says the caves are a ``fairyland of needle-likeicicles.'' Krumanaker says there are beautiful rock formations covered by icy stalactitesand stalagmites. He says if you crawl under them, the ice is like a glass floorthrough which you can see the bottom of the lake.(Copyright 2014 Associated Press - All Rights Reserved)
