Despite The Cold, Ice Not Thick Enough For Caves

Despite the recent cold temperatures, officials with the National Park Service say the ice on Lake Superior is not thick enough for people to travel to the ice caves. 

Park officials say it takes time for ice to form on Lake Superior, especially near the caves. 

The ice near the caves is not protected by the wind, which means ice is often blown out.  

Officials say it is unclear if the ice caves will open this year, and  if they do, it won't be until the end of the month at the earliest.
