Friday, August 4, 2017:  The five-mile long Mackinac Bridge links upper and lower Michigan at St. Ignace and Mackinaw City.
It is sometimes called the Mighty Mac or the Big Mac.  There was light rain that day as Mark crossed the bridge.


Excursion boats with hydro-jet drives often zoom under the bridge throwing a plume of water.
The bridge is where Lake Superior and Lake Michigan come together.  Strong currents in the water there. 


Then, there it was, a rainbow at the south end of the bridge.

Nearby Colonial Michilimackinac is now a historic site, open to the public. 
It originally had British soldiers charged with protecting the fur trade back in the 1700s


The place was well defended.

A lady historian was gathering spices and herbs for meals.

This man was a British soldier of the 1700s.

He fired a flint lock musket for onlookers.

A French trader was there with packs of furs.

Your good looking Gilbert Lodge photographer couldn't resist having his photo take by the bridge later in the day.

Quote of the day:    All in a day on the road.   Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
