- Wisconsin's winter wonder re-opened today after a temporary closure.
The National Park Service closed the caves at the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore Tuesday evening due to high winds.
Concerns were that wind and blowing snow could make the ice leading out to the caves unsafe.
Around 12,000 people have visited the ice caves along the south shore of Lake Superior in Northwestern Wisconsin since they opened last weekend.
Temperatures are on the rise heading into this weekend.
So visitors should hurry if they want to see the ice caves this year.
They'll be closed once the ice along the shore becomes unsafe.
