"Bowling Ball Ice"
Every now and then when the conditions are right, ice forms on Lake Michigan in spherical shapes. Two years ago, when Dave and Heather visited the spheres were especially large and plentiful. The only way to fully appreciate the phenomenon is to witness them in person, or for the less adventurous the following photographs.
As far as the eye can see Up Close With my foot for reference...hey! Another foot photo! http://wildmarymoments.blogspot.com/2008/06/feet.html
