Did anyone else see the episode of Dirty Jobs last week and yesterday's re-run of Mike Rowe changing light bulbs on the Mackinac Bridge? Its was pretty cool, he had to walk up the suspension cable to change one and then continued all the way up to the top of the tower to change one up there. They should charge money to do that, that may be an even bigger rush than that sky walk at the Grand Canyon.

It was also on a couple of months ago and I watched it then. Pretty scarey way up there. I have a photograph that was taken a few years ago from one of the towers looking down. My friend knew someone that worked for the bridge authority and was allowed to go up there. Of course, this was before all of the security issues.
