As those of you who have followed my blog for a while, you probably know I really loved bridges. Not sure exactly why I do, but I do, lol. Today I want to share some information and pictures about the beautiful Mackinaw Bridge. We were able to travel across it while in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan for our anniversary in May of this year. I had heard of this bridge for many years, and couldn’t wait to see it in person. It didn’t disappoint J It is/was beautiful. Before I tell you a little bit about our visit, let me give you some history about the bridge itself.
In December 2018 we were lucky enough to spend a week in New York. It was magical and I loved seeing the city all decked out for Christmas. The sights and sounds were amazing. Since it was our second trip to New York and decided to explore a little and headed out to take some pictures of the Manhattan Bridge and Brooklyn Bridge. We did some searching and found that the best place to see both of these was at a place called Brooklyn Bridge Park in the DUMBO neighborhood. DUMBO stands for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass. It’s the Brooklyn neighborhood where Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges meet.

The canyon also offers a selection of walking and hiking trails that connect to other parks in the region such as Lynn Headwaters, Rice Lake, and Inter River Park. It is huge and very beautiful. We were there in early May of 2016 and it wasn’t hot yet, so it was a perfect day to talk a walk on the bridge, lol. Continue reading “Lynn Canyon Park and Suspension Bridge – Vancouver, Canada”
