Preparations for walking the Bridge


We crossed the Mackinac Bridge this morning, in bright sunshine unlike our most recent southbound crossings, when it was rainy. We saw many crews busy with activities that were often unclear as we zoomed by. I assume they’re preparing for the famous Mackinac Bridge Walk, which has been held every Labor Day since 1958, the first after the Bridge opened, and the only time people can walk across. Some lucky people also get a chance to run across, I hear….

    We were going to walk it today but the GG told us we had to BE there at 6 AM, so we opted out. Maybe next year.

    I ran it along with 330 others; it was awesome! The sun began to rise just after I had crossed the half way mark. Would do it again…the walk; too many people. It took us an hour and 10 minutes to cross back over to the north side.
