Mackinac Bridge


After the latest fiasco with the Indiana motorhome manufacturer now fixing something they damaged, we desperately needed a change of scenery.  Our 41st anniversary was a few days ago, so we’ve escaped to upper Michigan for a week or so, to explore and sight-see.  We had no idea Michigan’s upper peninsula was so beautiful!

Here’s a photo I took of the Mackinac Bridge that crosses the Straits of Mackinac, connecting Lake Michigan and Lake Huron.

Currently the fifth longest suspension bridge in the world


(I’m in the process of playing catch up with the internet and blogs so bear with me.  It was nice to take a short break; but, oh my, it put me way behind!)

    • It sure is, Ingrid! This is our first venture to northern Michigan. The ferries are running for Mackinac Island but we decided to not take the chance this time around. We’ve been looking at the local campgrounds for a return another year and that ferry ride!

  1. This photo brings back pleasant memories when my husband and I walked the bridge among many other participates during Michigan’s annual event in September when pedestrians only could walk the bridge. There were thousands of people enjoying the view while taking the long five mile walk. thanks for sharking

    • I am happy to bring back those memories for you. I read about the annual event, how cool! It is unfortunate this year’s event has been cancelled due to the virus. They hope to host the event again in 2021. What a view from that bridge!

  2. Welcome to my home state, and the Yooper! It’s always fun to cross the Straits on Big Mac! The UP really is a beautiful part of Michigan, been way up there lots of times. Did you take HWY 2?

    • We’ve done some of Hwy 2 up to Brevort so far. We’re staying on ‘the other side’ in Petoskey and have driven M119 Tunnel of Trees and down Hwy 31 to Charlevoix. Going to Traverse City tomorrow to check out that area. Where are you from in Michigan?

  3. Beautiful! I’ve never been to Michigan but it looks like a good spot to put on the list. Sorry for your frustrating motor home troubles. Glad you could put it aside and enjoy your anniversary!

    • Thank you, Ellen!! It’s our first trip to northern Michigan and seeing Lake Michigan. Small nature preserves are everywhere, very impressed with the family donations of these tracts of dense forest land for preservation. Saw birds I didn’t know and couldn’t get my lens on. Ugh!! 😉

  4. I was born and raised in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and now I am returning to my roots. We live there most of the year now, again. I love it up here. But I have yet to make it to Mackinac Bridge, I may have crossed it when I was a child, but I can not remember. Beautiful photo. 🙂

  5. There is nothing like standing on the shore of a large lake. I actually was on the peninsula one year when we cut through the states on the way from eastern to western Canada.I am surprised that the water is so green.
