I had mentioned in an earlier post one of my favorite winter photography locations is the Apostle Islands Ice Caves. I’ve made the trip to visit the caves every year since 2007. Unfortunately last year the caves were not accessible because the ice never firmed up along the shore. My website is starting to get daily hits from folks starting to think about visiting the caves. If they open this year it will likely happen in the first few weeks of February. I can feel the excitement in the air and can’t wait for the caves to open. Every year the ice formations are different and they vary over time so you can plan for more than one visit and see something different each time.

This is a photo from my visit in 2007 to the caves. It shows some of the extensive stalactite formations that can be found on the ceiling of the caves. They are caused by ice seeping through the sandstone formations.

This is a photo from my visit in 2008 shows some of the ice formations formed by water running down the face of the sandstone formations along the shore.
