Mackinac Bridge

Our vacation all started with a trip across the Mackinac Bridge.  In all honesty, I haven't crossed the Mackinac Bridge since I walked across it with my family on Labor Day when I was about 6 years old.  The day was gorgeous and all we could see was the beautiful blue of the water meeting the bright blue sky.  I was so giddy and excited to cross over into the Upper Peninsula.  It was like entering an entirely new piece of Michigan that had been completely hidden to me.  I was surprised to learn that the Mackinac Bridge is the third longest suspension bridge in the world.  You can read all about its history here.
