Leaving Little Lake Brevort, we headed south to get our first glimpse of Lake Michigan. We were searching for a canyon on Hwy 2 where it crosses the Cut River. Unfortunately, the area was under construction, so we were routed around the scenic area.
For information, or to pay, contact the Cut River Store up on Highway 2 in Naubinway.
Bridge View Park. This is well worth a stop as the free visitor center has the history of this engineering marvel.
Some of the facts and figures are amazing, at least to us. The five mile long bridge uses 42,000 miles of wire in the main cables to support the 6,600 tons of main roadway. A mere 4.8 million rivets and over a million bolts hold it all together. For more figures, follow the link to the Bridge History.
