"Ice volcanoes"

Photographed by Pete Schenck, who lives in Herbster, Wisconsin (on Lake Superor):
Attached is a photo I shot this morning outside our back door. We're used to seeing these ice "volcanoes" on shore when the wind and waves coincide and actually squirt water up and out through a small opening. The water then freezes on top and the "ice volcano" grows.

  1. I like the chiminea (or whatever it is) that looks like a giant stubby beer bottle!

  2. Thank you - chiminea is a new word for me.

  3. They're called "hoodoos" on Lake Erie.
