FILE - In this Feb. 2, 2014 photo, people visit the caves at Apostle Islands National Lakeshore in northern Wisconsin, transformed into a dazzling display of ice sculptures by the arctic siege that gripped the Upper Midwest. The popular ice caves on Lake Superior will soon be closed due to ice melt, according to the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore Superintendent. The caves are usually accessible only by water, but Lake Superior’s rock-solid ice cover is letting people walk to them for the first time since 2009.

FILE - This 2002 file photo provided by the National Park Service shows the launch key mechanism at the deactivated Delta Nine Launch Facility near Wall, S.D. Failings exposed last spring at an Air Force nuclear missile base, described by one officer as “rot” in the ranks, were even worse than originally reported, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press. All the staff involved with missile operation at Minot Air Force Base, N.D., passed an inspection with a “marginal” rating, the equivalent of a D in school _ and that was only because of good marks received by people like cooks or facilities managers. The men and women entrusted with launch keys to 150 Minuteman 3 intercontinental ballistic missiles would have flunked. (AP Photo/Minuteman Missile NHS)
