Last year individuals were wowed by the ice caves on the shores of Lake Michigan. For those who couldn’t witness the natural wonder in person, photographer Ken Scott helped bring some of that magic to life. This year, the ice caves weren’t guaranteed to repeat, so when Eric LaPaugh of Leelanau Adventures posted a 30 second video from inside the ice cave, the video went viral; with people sharing it across all mediums of social media. ABC made the journey with a film crew to check out the ice caves with Eric and played the footage on their nightly news broadcast.

In this MyNorth video, videographer Kris Riley heads out with Eric LaPaugh of Leelanau Adventures to experience the first ice caves of 2015. Follow along as Eric guides and gives advice on how to safely navigate the ice caves.
