Against the Wind
And so the adventure began. we travelled across the Mackinaw bridge under a wind advisory. We were only allowed to drive 20 mph over one of the longest suspension bridges. It is amazing how oblivious of potential death kids can be. I was acutely aware. So much so i was sure I was going to throw up. Obviously we survived and hit up a meet and greet with Paul Bunyan and his great ox Blue
Like I stated in my previous post, the weather had turned to a brisk 64 degrees fahrenheit. However, it did not deter us! Next stop? Tahquamenon Falls!
Since it wasn’t getting any warmer and we were already in the upper peninsula, we drove a little bit further north and headed to Whitefish Point on Lake Superior. It was incredibly windy, choppy and cold. As we are true adventurers, it did not deter us! Rowen even met a little friend!
We wrapped up our day and headed back south. Along the way you could really feel the isolation and the “wilderness” of the UP. we dd not see much for wildlife besides some cranes along the side of the road, however, this left an impression:
One of my favorite images.
We headed back over the Mighty Mac and got back to camp in time for an enchanting sunset. Thankfully the wind advisory was done and I was able to take some pics of the bridge.
