Munising Ice Festival

During the weekend of February 1-4, 2001, approximately 400-500 ice climbers converged on Munising in Michigan's Upper Peninsula for the annual Michigan Ice Fest sponsored by Down Wind Sports  of Marquette. It turns out that the Munising area holds some of the best ice-climbing opportunities in the Midwest. My daughter Jenny and I went out with her two friends, Heather and John Grubbs, to give it a go.
