Labor Day weekend is upon us and this photo is a great way to symbolize the end of the summer tourism season with the fog coming down on the bridge like a big white dividing curtain. What awaits on the otherside? Some things we know for sure. The start of school, the coming of fall, football season… What are your thoughts on pre and post Labor Day Michigan?
From the photographer:
The Mackinac Bridge covered in fog while I drive across taking pictures and trying desperately not to crash into someone.

White clouds I’m in

C’mon huckleberry finn
Show me how to make her grin
…well I’m in Michigan

2006 Mackinac Bridge Walk
The Mackinac Bridge Walk is an annual event held every Labor Day since 1958 in Michigan in which people may walk the length of the Mackinac Bridge. Walkers are traditionally led across by the governor of Michigan, currently Jennifer M. Granholm. In an average year, 50,000 to 65,000 people participate in the five-mile walk. This is more than the combined population of the two counties connected by the bridge.
