A Walk Along Lake Michigan

March isn't exactly the time of year one would want to walk along the shore of Lake Michigan, but last weekend was unseasonably warm. Even though the temperatures were above freezing for a few days, the huge mounds of shelf ice were still holding on to the shore, in fact, you couldn't see water anywhere on the lake.

This gives you an idea of how large the mounds of shelf ice are...

Standing on Shelf Ice

One person decided to climb onto one of the mounds - not something I would do - although it sure is inviting! This ice is extremely dangerous, and I wouldn't set foot on it without ice climbing gear.

Interesting perspectives. From the shoreline, the shelf ice really obstructs the view of the lake.
