Some Northern Winter Fun

It has been a few years since our winter has been cold enough to produce abundant Lake Michigan ice.  We saw it a few days ago while hiking Pyramid Point.  I knew we would be on a beach soon to explore all the beautiful blue and winter whiteness.  

There was so much variety — from bright blue puddles like this…

…. to dense pack ice that has filled Sleeping Bear Bay and half the Manitou Passage…

… to a frozen beach with big chunks of sandy ice.

Of course, the best of all were the ice caverns.  A hiding place to sit in.

Or to sleep in…

… or to dine in….

… or to serve as a lookout.

Here’s a view from inside the cavern.  It is comfortably out of the wind and the view is great.
