I've always been fascinated by the building of bridges.
My grandmother's house was on the Blanchard River and the civil engineers decided it was time for a new bridge as the last one got swept away in "The Flood". (That is a whole other story!) Every day after school I would sit for hours watching them remove the old and construct the new so I guess this is how my fascination began. Great babysitter BTW!
Recently I saw an article entitled 27 Inspiring Bridges and just had to take a look. The very last one brought back wonderful memories for me. As you may recall I spent my college summers working at the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island. Here is my room in the hotel.
And what a wonderful view I had of the great Mackinac Bridge sans the snow.
Which got me wondering how another of my favorite bridges did not make the cut?
