After paying the toll, we headed down to the approach of the bridge and looked at the water where Lake Michigan and Lake Huron meet.
Wow -- when we rounded the curve and saw the bridge, we were very impressed. Built in 1957, the main suspension length is a whopping 8,614 feet!
There is quite a hill to climb as we head toward the peak of the bridge -- some 200 feet above the water below. Naturally, the day we went over there was construction on the bridge and one lane was closed. Still, this was a great experience.
After crossing the bridge, we made our way about 30 miles to the Signature Motorcoach Resort just south of Petoskey, MI. This is a beautiful resort and is fully equipped with all the amenities of a great RV park. Rick enjoyed setting up on the full concrete pad with great hookups.
