Humans can't quite walk on water - except this time of year. The chilly days of winter have been going on for months now. Ice fisherman are out in the bay, skaters are out, but there also can be hikes on water. The sea caves on the south shore of Lake Superior are open displaying the interesting patterns of frozen water. The area in the summer is only visible by boat but in the frozen winter more people can enjoy the beauty and walk right in the cave-like openings. The right conditions to walk out to the caves don't occur every year or throughout a whole winter season.
An automated Apostle Islands Ice Line is available - call (715)779-3398, extension 3, for current ice conditions at the mainland caves.
Another opportunity to walk on water (ice) is through the St. Louis River Alliance. On Saturday, Feb 15 at 1 p.m. the organization is having an outing to explore old saw mill sites that were present on the St. Louis River. For more information, go to www.stlouisriver.org.
Enjoy water outdoors all the year through. Be sure to stay safe and travel with caution on ice as the season comes to an end. Spring will come some day.
