OWEN COUNTY, Ind. – The extreme cold temperatures experienced in Indiana caused the state’s largest waterfall to ice over.

Jet Kaiser of Greencastle and his wife Danielle visited the falls over the weekend and took some stunning photographs.

The falls resulted from two pre-glacial bedrock ridges buried beneath ancient lake sediments of the Illinoisan glacial period, according to the Department of Natural Resources.

The waterfall is located along Cataract Road in northern Owen County. That’s near the intersection of State Road 42 and State Road 243.

If you choose to visit, remember that there are dangers you face when walking onto frozen bodies of water. So be careful.
