A visit to Frosting Cave – Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario Canada
In Early April of 2011, I was fortunate enough to be in contact with a few local cavers who pointed me in the right direction to find Frost Cave. A 12 metre long cave in the limestone cliffs of the Niagara Escarpment.
The southernmost section of the Niagara Escarpment lies in a small town of Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario Canada.
When most people visit Niagara-on-the-Lake, they are usually coming to enjoy locally made wines, or take in historic sites like Fort Niagara and Fort George. Few people think of the natural history of the area.
The Niagara-on-the-Lake region was once part of the Silurian Sea, a giant sea which was left over from the last ice age. Over time, the water receded into what is now the great lakes. The Niagara Escarpment was it’s south-western border.
