[PICS] My adventure to the ICE CAVES over the weekend!

After hearing about this National wonder on the local and national news, and then hearing about it from friends who made the trek north – I decided I wanted to be a part of this spectacle known only as the ICE CAVES.

First off, the Ashland/Bayfield area is stunning and remarkably dense.   The sunlight literally glimmered over the tops of the heavily wooded forests all the way to the top in a small town called, “Cornucopia”.   This is Wisconsin’s northernmost village – about 6 ½ - 7 hours north of Southern Wisconsin. 

The trek to the ice caves begins by taking a shuttle (which you don’t have to take, but it’s easier) to the National Forest, followed by a small descend to the Lake Superior shoreline.

From there, you walk across the lake out about a mile and a half with the harsh wind whipping against the back of your body, until you reach these beautiful caves:

If you haven’t had the chance to see this for yourself it is TOTALLY worth it!  There are only a few weeks left in 2014 to visit before the area becomes dangerous to navigate
