We went over that amazing Big Mac bridge on Friday on our sweet ride provided by our good friends, Snowman(Duane) and Nancy from our Ausable Tractor Club! After which we unloaded our 5HP Galloway motor and participated in the engine show at the Little Bear Arena in St. Ignace, Michigan. We spent the day there on Saturday, loaded in the rain and headed west to continue our incredible honeymoon journey.
Driving across the Upper Peninsula, we stopped to walk out to some lighthouses and ended up in Marinette, Wisconsin where we found another light house to meander out to. The people there didn’t even seem to notice this amazing piece of history. Early Sunday morning, we headed out of eastern time and took a southwesterly direction through Wisconsin with some beautiful views of Lake Michigan and on across the mighty Mississippi River into Minnesota’s rolling green hills and more beautiful farms and barns. Interstate 90 took us across Minnesota and into Laura Ingalls Wilder territory.
The palace was not the same as I remembered it at all. Back on the road, we made Ft. Pierre by sundown. Today will bring us on south through the Sandhills of Nebraska and back home.
