In Michigan — The Water Wonderland

A view on the Mackinac Bridge from car with window rolled down. This is typical of bridge view taken by motorists who are fortunate enough to have someone else at the driver’s seat. The every steady stream of freighters passing underneath add to the spectacular beauty to be seen from the bridge. Such an experience is one of ‘life’s little extras.”
