Across the Mackinac

We finally left the upper peninsula after our day in the Sault Ste Marie area.  The short trip across upper Michigan was better than we ever imagined.  And what a fitting way to leave - we crossed the five mile long Mackinac bridge into Mackinaw City.  By the way, both of those words, Mackinac and Mackinaw are pronounced the same way - as the "awe" in "awesome."  Explanation here.

There are a couple of places to get a good view of the bridge before you pony up the $4 toll and go across.  The first gives a nice aerial view, although it could use some tree trimming.

And right before the toll plaza is another from water level.
