Before I get in our little vacation I want to put a quick thank you to Wenn from Experiences for sending me this tiny little magnet...it's barely an inch big and so cute! All I had to do was tell her three places she traveled to, which was easy because she travels all over the world! Thanks, Wenn!
Now on to the vacation. We left on Monday morning and drove all the way to the upper peninsula, to the Cut River Bridge. The Cut River is not really that big but it's in the bottom of a gorge that the bridge goes over. It was a little freaky being under the bridge, though!
Then we walked down approximately 20,658 steps to get to where the Cut River flows into Lake Michigan.
|See the bridge way up there?|
It was worth the hike!
Then we crossed back into the lower peninsula and stayed the night in Mackinaw City. We hung out under the Mackinaw Bridge to try to see the sunset, but it was too cloudy!
This is underneath the Mackinaw Bridge facing north. To the left is Lake Michigan, and to the right is Lake Huron. Can you see the difference?
Ha Ha just kidding, there is no difference, obviously!
