the Mighty Mac

Leaving the Upper Peninsula, riding over the Mighty Mac (Mackinac Bridge which connects the two "peninsulas" of Michigan), I always cry.....  This is from September, 2006, the end of a trip to Paradise, a village and a state of mind in the UP.   This is for M. Louis la Vache's  Sunday Bridge Series.
For more on this beautiful bridge over the Straits of Mackinac (pronounced as if the last letter is a "w"), go to the bridge authority website: http://www.mackinacbridge.org/.
For a novel about one of the young men from the UP who worked on the bridge when it was being built, try Jim Harrison's Sun Dog.
