Ice Formations of Lake Michigan
New Buffalo Lakefront Parks and Beaches

Join the Harbor Country Hikers (HCH) for a beautiful New Buffalo Harbor sunset. While we wait for the sunset, HCH Board Member Janet Schrader and President Pat Fisher will explain the origins of the many ice formations that can be found along the shores of Lake Michigan. If the weather cooperates, we many even see some of those formations first-hand.

Hear their tales of woe and wonder and keep your fingers crossed for a glorious sunset.
