With family day just yesterday, the Ice Caves at Crystal Beach saw a few thousand explorers come out to enjoy this wonderous attraction. High winds over Lake Erie were able to push large pieces of ice onto the shore. As more and more ice piled up, caves began to form. These caves are wide enough to allow visitors to walk in and see the formations up close.
Unfortunately, as beautiful as these formations are, they can also be quite dangerous. An elderly man visiting the caves slipped and struck his head, while another elderly woman slipped injured her hip. After much deliberation, authorities have decided to demolish the ice caves. With a warm front on its way, the melting caves could spell disaster.
In case you missed all the fun, Naturally in Niagara has put together a short video exploring the terrain. Make sure to check out the photos too!
