Not-so-Hollow Rock
Hollow Rock - Grand Portage, Minnesota

All I can say is that's a lot of ice. I love this photo because it shows us all the power of a Minnesota winter. An entire island encased and draped in ice is a powerful sight. Definitely the best Minnesota photo for February 2011.

The photographer says: This little "island" is called Hollow Rock and is located just south of Grand Portage, Minnesota. However, I understand that a storm pushed ice and snow into the "hollow" earlier this winter and closed it off. It is a beautiful place to shoot...and if anyone is interested, they have added a few new cabins to the Resort - a wonderful getaway.
