Well- a trip to the Ice Caves in the Apostle Island area, is something to behold. First there are some things to know:
1. go early- there have been over 20,000 people per weekend trekking onto the ice by Cornucopia but this venue doesn't really have the space for that type of crowd.
2. dress to walk on Lake Superior - don't forget to layer, making sure to cover your face as well as this is a 1.5 mile hike and the winds do bite on a uncovered face.
3. No need to snowshoe-cross country ski- just plain hiking is fine but bring a camera as the caves are spectacular and unusual this year.
4. bring along water- there are no "fountains" on the lake but you will want to keep your thirst to a minimum.
Spectacular pictures of over a mile of ice caves comes with the walk.
