5″x 7″ Card: Ice Caves—”Ice Shards”
The photo that appears on this 5” x 7” card (blank inside) is from Catherine Lange’s series of Ice Caves photos taken during a very frigid January in 2014. Nearly 90 percent of Lake Superior froze that season, and the ice caves became accessible. The Lake Superior Ice Caves are located in the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore at Mawikwe Bay along the mainland. When the lake freezes, people can make the two-mile-long round-trip hike across the ice to see the caves, and during that season almost 140,000 people traveled from around the world to do that. Frozen waterfalls formed pillars of ice on the red cliffs. Icicles adorned cliff edges and the domed ceilings of caves.
