More Ice Bridge 2011

It's like a highway out there, people and freight speeding in both directions.

A pressure crack has formed, but a little plywood takes care of that little problem.

You can't beat the scenery, I-75 sure doesn't look like this:

Road work is currently underway (this is Michigan after all). Here's some Christmas trees being hauled out to mark a second trail.

Spudding a hole to hold the tree, as cold as it's been, it won't take long to freeze in place.

High winds last week did cause some shifting of the ice and there is open water on the east side of the Island, but the bridge has firmed up again - for the moment - it can change quickly and we always ask around for the most recent conditions before considering a crossing.
