Cooley Memorial Bridge

Dear webmaster

Would be nice to incorperate my recent pictures of the "Cooley Memorial Bridge" ("Pine River Bridge")... I was very excited to discover the spectacular truss arch the very weekend I took part in the Labor Day Mackinac Bridge bridge walk. I took several pictures of "Big Mac" too.

Thanks...

I caught up with this beauty Labor Day weekend. I am in northern Michigan to partake in the Mackinac Bridge Labor Day bridgewalk. I have a camera and bridges are undoubtedly my favorite subject. The Pine River Bridge is formally called the Cooley Bridge.
