Ice Caves of Leelanau

This visual feast captures the ice on the Great Lakes from Winter 2013-14, a year that IceBookCover_4-21-14lgc2resulted in 90% of the Great Lakes covered in ice. But the lakes weren’t just frozen, they were covered in caves, ice balls, pancake ice and volcano formations. There were shapes, fan-shaped icicles, blue ice and pressure ridges. Who knew that there were so many different kinds of ice? Ken Scott captured it all with his ubiquitous camera, and informs us with how these natural phenomena occur.

With an introductory essay by Jerry Dennis, this book is a Michigan must-have.
