When I moved to Minnesota back in 2011, I came to know about these amazing Ice Caves just four hours drive from Minneapolis. I wanted to visit them in following winter but 2012 winter was not so cold and Ice Caves did not open for hike. In 2013 it was extreme cold and Ice Caves were open but we had new member in our family(my lil cute daughter) so did not plan. This year winter was kind of zig zag so was not sure whether Ice Caves will get open for hike. And I got lucky this time, Ice Caves got open for a week end of Feb and first week of March and this time I decided to go see them. I had a day trip from Minneapolis to Bayfield, Wisconsin with few my friends and it was really amazing to hike on frozen Superior lake and see these amazing caves.
So what is so amazing about these ice caves is that these ice caves formed from leaking rocks water and superior lake waves. The formations are so amazing and more amazing is hike on frozen Superior lake to see these caves. its approximately three miles hike round trip to Ice Caves.
Here are some of pictures sharing with you.
Minnesota is famous for extreme winter and snow. Last winter was so worst that hardly we got chance to go out. This winter we are bit lucky compare to Eastern part, we do not have much snow and few days of this winter we got temperature in 30s. Last week we got chance to see Ice Castle in my own town. This castle is hand made by icicles. The castle is really amazing and its an amazing art which i got chance to see. Here are few pictures to share with you.
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 17,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 6 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
Exit Glacier is around 12 miles from Seward. This is the only portion of the Kenai Fjords National Park accessible via road. We went to see Exit Glacier while returning back from Seward. This glacier is quick and easily accessible. we did a quick walk on trail took some photos of the glacier. Here are some photos to share with you…
