Day 3: June 29 - Sault Ste. Marie, ON, to home

I started off the morning with this view from my hotel room:

Unlike the first two days, the final day of the trip was an interstate-heavy day. Other than the Mackinac Bridge, I'd not been on any of I-75 north of the M-54/M-83 exit, so it was straight down I-75 to Flint with the following deviations:

Quick foray off the Alger exit to venture into Gladwin County
Short trip down US 10/Bus US 10 to get Midland County
The I-676 loop around Saginaw
I-475 through Flint

From Flint I headed east on I-69 to cross the Blue Water Bridge for the first time. Had a quick lunch in Point Edward before heading back to Michigan. The wait to cross here was longer than my other three crossings combined. Next was I-94 down to I-676, one of the two segments of I-94 I was still missing (the other is from St. Paul to St. Cloud, which was skipped over during a western trip so I could visit the Biggest Ball of Twine in Minnesota). My final new interstate mileage of the trip was I-696 from I-94 to I-75, and from there it was I-696, I-274, M-14 and I-94 back home, through lots of construction, traffic, and rain.

It was a lot of driving in three days, but I tend to prefer covering as much mileage as possible per day. Lots can change before next summer, but the current plan is to get the rest of the counties in Wisconsin I'm missing, get I-535 at Duluth, and that section of I-94 I'm missing.
You missed the Zilwaukee Bridge that's always a fun bridge to cross lol.

I actually crossed it twice. I went down to the south end of I-675, took it back around to I-75, and then back south.

I've done that loop several times. When you crossed over Shattuck Road you were like 2 miles from me.
