CHESTERTON, Ind. (CBS) — The Indiana Department of Natural Resources was warning people that the captivating ice built up on the lake Michigan shoreline might be beautiful, but it can be deadly.
WBBM Newsradio’s s Mike Krauser reports shelf ice has piled high along the shore at Indiana Dunes State Park, creating a surreal scene. The massive sheets of ice stretch far out onto the surface of the lake, in some places hundreds of feet. Many areas are covered in balls of snow and ice formed by wind and waves.
In some spots, holes in the ice allow you to see multicolored pools of water.
