Even though we traveled south for spring break, we still had to bring our coats and hats. Our journey home took us north through Michigan, across the Mackinac Bridge, and west along the bottom edge of the Upper Peninsula where these pictures were taken.
This bridge connects the upper and lower peninsulas of Michigan together along I-75 and boast of being the longest suspension bridge between anchorages in the Western Hemisphere. Unfortunately, we found it to be closed due to falling ice that added a 4 hour delay to our trip.
It was a scenic drive allowing us to enjoy the view of Lake Michigan, Huron, and Superior.
I don’t know about you but I get grumpy when I’m cold. Yet, I find that it is when I bundle up and venture out in to “the arctic”, I often am surprised to be greeted by the loveliness of God’s creation. When face to face with undeniable beauty, I can’t help but have a more positive attitude, even if the temperatures are beyond negative.
He gives snow like wool; He scatters the frost like ashes. He casts forth His ice as fragments; Who can stand before His cold? He sends forth His word and melts them; He causes His wind to blow and the waters to flow.
