Lovely Day for a stroll

Have you ever wanted to join the Labor Day walk across the Mackinaw Bridge? Daryl Laitila and her husband Bill did just that, earlier today at the Straits. Perhaps Daryl will share more of the experience and more scenes of this event on this interactive page.

I sure would like to know what kind of camera Daryl used for the bridge photos. They are great!

We made it across the bridge in one hour-twenty minutes. It took about two hours to get back to our car on the St. Ignace side however. I believe they had 129 buses to take people back and forth. This was our first time crossing on Labor Day and we highly recommend it. It's lots of fun for the whole family.

It was a perfect day, hope you enjoy the Labor Day extra photos I've added. By the way, I have a Nikon Coolpix 990 digital camera.

Thanks for the terrific photos of the Labor Day Bridge Walk. I walked the bridge on Labor Day 1966 and 1968 while I was working on Mackinac Island. I hope to do it again someday. In the meantime, it is great to see pictures of others enjoying the Mighty Mac.

I really appreciate this website.

Ma and Pa drove across the bridge last weekend in their RV. They didn't blow off, thank goodness! They did the Lake Michigan circle drive. Maybe the Pasty Cam can do a series of road shots on a Lake Superior Circle Tour and a Lake Michigan Circle Tour? Would be neat!

We plan to walk the bridge this Labor Day 2002. It will be our first time, and would like to hear any tips you can share. I will be parking in Mack City. Any help?
