SFG's Mackinac Bridge Walk

One of the great Michigan traditions is the Bridge Walk. Every Labor Day thousands join our Governor in walking the five mile span of the Mackinac Bridge, the suspension bridge which spans the Straits of Mackinac and joins the Upper and Lower Peninsulas of Michigan.

I was first able to do this back in 1990, which I captured on videotape for the old local origination cable show I used to do. You can see a RealVideo clip of that walk here

The second time I made it up North was in 1999, shown below.
