Lake Michigan Shoreline Spectacle

Updated:
Two Rivers native Bob Brault decided to grab his camera today and capture something he hasn't seen in decades along the shores of Lake Michigan.

"You can see a lot of ice bergs out here, we haven't had that many in years, but they're here now," says Brault.

Thanks to the extreme frigid and windy weather in recent days, waves crashing along the shore have froze--- and built up--- creating a sight you would expect to see in the arctic.

"Yeah I sure wouldn't think to see it in Kewaunee, Wisconsin," says Kewaunee native Jesse Williams.

Williams and his friends graduated from high school in Kewaunee last spring.

They've never witnessed Lake Michigan like this.

"Never seen it pile up so much along the whole shoreline," says Shayne Dawe.

"It's cold, but I mean it sure is a sight to see," says Williams.


"Yeah it's definitely worth seeing," adds Dawe.

P
erhaps the most stunning sights can be found in Algoma, where ice bergs along the shore are well over ten feet high.

"This is not something the locals get to see every day and every year," says 
Algoma Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Joy Krieger.
 
She says despite the brutal cold, she's noticed a lot of cameras in recent days along the shoreline.

"You could stand here and think you might be somewhere on the poles, somewhere that you normally wouldn't see in Wisconsin," says Krieger.

A reminder that some of nature's most extreme conditions can lead to portraits of its amazing beauty.
