Ice caves have formed along the eastern side of Lake Michigan.

Just north of Leland in Leelanau County, ice caves have formed along the eastern side of Lake Michigan.

The caves are formed by the wind and wave action, westerly winds push slushy ice up along the shoreline. Layer after layer freezes on top of each other, and forms huge piles of ice. Some of them reach thirty feet high.
