ICE ROAD BETWEEN BAYFIELD, WISCONSIN & MADELINE ISLAND
Contributed by Rod & Judy Ness of Hermantown, Minnesota
Wisconsin's ice road is somewhat unusual in that it exists only a few months each year. A popular television show recently profiled the challenges and dangers of driving heavy-laden trucks along the ice roads of northern Canada, but, as you can see from these photos shot by Rod Ness, smaller vehicles also carry out assignments on seasonally frozen roadways in other areas. These photos were taken on the ice road constructed each winter on Lake Superior between Bayfield, Wisconsin on the mainland and LaPointe, Wisconsin on Madeline Island.
