Start of Meyers Beach Sea Caves
From the put-in at Meyers Beach on the Bayfield Peninsula, WI, you head northeast for a mile or so, and then caves begin to appear in the beautiful sandstone cliff
Rounding the Corner
The best caves start after you go around this corner
A Typical Cave
There are many sea caves along a mile or so of cliff
Fortunately there were no waves this day, so we could explore inside all of the caves.
Here's Ann inside one of the caves.
Ann is leaving the cave in the previous photo. Often you can go in one place and come out somewhere else.
Crack Cave Entrance
One of the caves leads to a 3 foot wide crack at the back.
Into the Crack
Of course, you have to go as far as possible into the crack to see what's there. Wouldn't we have been surprised if we had found a hungry bear!
Here' the view looking out from one of the caves.
There are also some nice arches along the Meyers Beach cliff.
Here's a cute sea stack with an arch of its own.
There are lots of places along the cliff with dripping water. This freezes in winter and covers the cliffs in ice. After the lake freezes over, you can walk from Meyers Beach to the sea caves, which are then ice caves.
The seeping water supports plant life even inside some of the caves.
The sandstone is usually red, which makes for colorful photos.
