Under the bridge...from my kayak

Under the bridge...from my kayak
On a calm evening, we were able to take our kayaks out and paddle around under the Mackinac Bridge. It was an awesome experience (and several people honked and waved at us as they passed)! On the east side of this huge span, we were in Lake Huron---and west of it, we were in Lake Michigan! They are connected through the 5 mile wide stretch called the Mackinac Straits, which is where the bridge joins Lower and Upper Michigan.

From Wikipedia: "Consisting of Lakes Superior, Michigan, Huron, Erie, and Ontario, they (the Great Lakes) form the largest group of freshwater lakes on Earth, containing 21% of the world's surface fresh water and 54% of the world's liquid fresh water by volume." "Though the five lakes reside in separate basins, they form a single, naturally interconnected body of fresh water, within the Great Lakes Basin. The lakes form a chain connecting the east-central interior of North America to the Atlantic Ocean. From the interior to the outlet at the Saint Lawrence River, water flows from Superior to Huron and Michigan, southward to Erie, and finally northward to Lake Ontario." (The great Niagara Falls are between Lake Erie and Lake Ontario......"Located on the Niagara River, which drains Lake Erie into Lake Ontario, the combined (3) falls form the highest flow rate of any waterfall in the world, with a vertical drop of more than 165 feet (50 m)."

The Great Lakes drain a large watershed via many rivers, and are studded with approximately 35,000 islands. There are also several thousand smaller lakes, often called "inland lakes," within the basin. The surface area of the five primary lakes combined is roughly equal to the size of the United Kingdom."
