Straights of Mackinac

On day 4, we headed north towards the Mackinac Bridge. North of Charlevoux near Grey's Reef you pass an abandoned lighthouse as you turn east towards Mackinac. This lighthouse used to be a critical warning for boats near the reef.

On the trip up to Saint Ignace, you pass under the Straits of Macinac Bridge. It is the third longest in total suspension in the world, and the longest suspension between anchorages in the Western Hemisphere. Note the 18-wheeler just to the right of the left tower.
