It may not be possible to visit Ice caves in the Apostles Island National Lakeshore near Ashland, Wisconsin this winter. In previous winters, up to 8000 people in one day have walked a few kilometers across the ice in a steady stream to visit the caves. National Lakeshore officials pin blame for the lack of ice to walk out to the caves on the warm winter, especially a strong El Niño. Read more about the ice caves and view some fantastic photos in the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
