Wonder Lake Superior Iced Caves

Wonder Lake Superior Iced Caves
While this year's bitter winter has created its share of problems, Mother Nature has provided a beautiful and rare treat for those living in the upper Midwest. For the first time in five years, people can visit the mainland sea caves of the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore by walking on a frozen Lake Superior. 
Photographer Brian Peterson captured an otherworldly photo of the ice caves (above). You can see more of his photos in this gallery. In addition, photographer Andy Rathbun got his own first-hand look, taking the shots below and writing about his experience in this article. As he states, "Sandstone caves filled with thousands of icicles. Frozen branches hanging over cliffs, clamoring in the breeze like wind chimes. Blue ice, orange ice, white ice.
nd are spectacular, and people are taking note."
