A fairly decent dump of snow while at work today, albeit the wet heavy variety more characteristic of Southern Michigan. What a tremendous difference between now and last December, when we already had near a month of five feet of snow. This will likely not be a year for the ice caves to open at Cornucopia. I hope that you will get to see them someday-a true marvel to photograph and walk inside. The girls would be awestruck. The only issue is the thousands upon thousands of tourists they attract. I have found that getting there at first light will get you a parking spot and the opportunity to walk the three miles out and back without too much crowd overload. Even in the absence of snow cave access, Lake Superior and the many local rivers and waterfalls offer a tremendous variety of photographic opportunities in the fourth season, especially with snowshoes and/or climbing equipment.
