For the first time in five years, the must-follow @Interior account notes, Lake Superior is frozen enough to visit the amazing ice caves at Apostle Island.

This happens every year, but only when Lake Superior is frozen enough can you actually go visit these awesome ice caves. First, some more pics:

Now go read this piece about the phenomenon:

Stalactites point downward like frozen daggers, water molecules morphed into icicles taller than two-story houses.

It happens every year along the shores of Lake Superior near Bayfield, but few have seen the spectacular ice caves in the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore in many years.

For the first time since 2009, ice along the shore is solid enough to support hardy visitors willing to hike more than two miles round-trip to ogle the natural sculptures.

No one is sure how long the glacial art gallery will remain open.

Everyone, quick, let’s field trip to Wisconsin before it gets warm.
