Last year I forced my brother and his wife to take my cousin Ross and me to the Apostle Island ice caves up in northern Wisconsin. The conditions are very rare for Lake Superior to freeze solid enough so that you can hike out to these caves in the winter. Typically people kayak to them in the summertime.
Well in 2014 for the first time in five years the National Park service opened them up to the public. It was about a three-mile hike round trip, and worth every minute.
