Blue Ice doesn’t happen in Michigan every year so when the Mackinac Bridge Blue Ice is there it’s time for a photography road trip! The ice looks blue when the air bubbles get squeezed out. However it happens it sure looks cool and is really something to partake. On my way north on the I-75 towards Mackinaw City Blue Ice the blue sky kept popping out but the clouds looked solid on the horizon so I figured it would be grey at the bridge, just like the forecast said. I kept driving and kept seeing blue skies! We arrived to a beautiful blue sky and a very cool cloud line as the backdrop for the afternoon. I didn’t realize just how much blue ice there was to see. Even though there were people around it was easy to find a spot with just you, blue ice and the Mighty Big Mac bridge. We walked west along the shore and checked out under the bridge. It was cool to get a closer look, standing on what was usually a few feet of water.

Thanks for checking out my Mackinac Bridge Blue Ice photography. After crossing the Mackinac Bridge we drove on to the upper Tahquamenon Falls, then Munising to explore the ice curtains along Sand Point Road, then a snowmobile sled ride to photograph Miners Castle and Miners Falls in Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. We also checked out Munising Falls. Pack your ice cleats, it’s time to hit the road!
