Mackinac Bridge!  It connects the Upper Peninsula (at St. Ignace) with the Lower Peninsula (Mackinaw City), where all us trolls live.

This bridge post is brought to you by Ruby+Associates, the OFFICIAL structural engineering company of choice of my Instagram account.  Ruby+Associates - when you're here, you're family.

Ruby+Associates doesn't know they are the official structural engineering company of choice of my Instagram account, but THEY ARE ANYWAY. 😤😤😤
