Extreme Ice by papatheo Extreme Ice by papatheo
Another shot of last year's "ice shove" at Peninsula State Park [north of Green Bay, Wisconsin]. Many of the ice shards are 6 to 8 feet long and the turquoise colored ice is referred to as "blue ice" and was never exposed to air in its formation. Oh... and yes it was cold out there!

That's amazing but what makes the shards become so huge??

The wind and current push the ice onto the shore where it is forced into the air as it break and climbs over ice that is already wedged on the rocks... these are called "ice shoves" and can be quite high... I heard there were some about 20 miles north of this location that were 20 feet high [we went there but could only gain access by going down a steep trail that was 200 feet above the lake and completely covered in ice!!! We were forced to retreat and wait 'til next year... only four months to go!!! :nod:

It is formed on the bottom of the ice [instead of expanding on the top... into the air]!!!
