In the woods, outside the Upper Peninsula town of Eben, lies a small unimpressive little
waterfall. Unimpressive in the Summer, that is. The water, which seeps slowly through the rock
in the Summer, continues to seep through in the Winter, even on days that are below freezing.
When the water hits the cold air, it freezes, creating a spectacular ice cave. Normally, there
are openings in the ice that allow you to walk behind the wall of ice and see it beautifully
back-lit. I have seen this wall of ice nearly closed off but there always seems to be an
opening to get through. Watch your step though! the floor of the cave is a slab of ice too.
Many people lose traction on the ice and take out some of the beautiful icicles as they try
to catch their balance.
If you are thinking that the ice looks kind of green in these photos,
you are correct. It isn't some trick of digital photography, it actually looks green.
