This is a big ship going through the Soo locks in Sault Ste. Marie. We were lucky to see a "double header" when we were there last night. This big ship went through one lock and at the same time a barge came through the front lock. It was fun to watch the water being raised in one and lowered in the other. I believe the amount of change was 21 feet. Today went to Mackinaw City and drove across the bridge and saw the island. Tomorrow the plan is to leave in mid-morning and head north and east into Canada. I hope it's cooler that today was as I don't like temps in the 90's. We turned off the air in the RV when we were gone, and it was 85 in here when we returned. Too hot for me......I'm heading north.
We haven't been back to the upper penninsula of Michigan since we left here with three little kids in tow and moved to Grand Forks AFB. We had been stationed at KI Sawyer AFB for two short years and we loved it! Sure the winters were very snowy and cold, and the summers short and sweet, but when you can have scenery like the above, it makes all the rest of it worth it. This was taken along the highway somewhere between Marquette and Sault Ste. Marie at a rest stop. Isn't it beautiful?
