Freezing temperatures created a path to the sea caves of Lake Superior

You know it’s cold when a previously inaccessible set of sea caves can now be visited by thousands of tourists by walking on the frozen ice. For the first time in five years, the sea caves near the Apostle Islands in Wisconsin can now be accessed – at least for the next few weeks – by foot. In the summer months, visitors usually take a boat to access the caves. In winter, the caves are inaccessible, as Lake Superior is considered unstable and dangerous to walk on.

But now, with record temperatures, people are making their way to the caves to experience the beauty of it all. Hey, we’ve all been freezing our butts off, might as well get something out of it, right?
