Wisconsin

Cheese. Beer. Sausages.  Do you see a trend here?

From the thriving cities on the shores of Lake Michigan to the quieter resort towns scattered near Lake Superior, water demonstrates importance in Wisconsin. Large portions of the state’s boundaries are water – the lakes mentioned above or the St. Croix and Mississippi Rivers on the west. In addition the land is dotted with smaller lakes and rivers, creeks, and farm ponds.

Due to living in this state from birth to young adulthood, and visiting since then, I’ve too much to tell in one (or even several) blogs. Do I tell of the iconic farmstead with white house and red barn? Or catching a fish from shore, dock or boat? Visiting a university campus? The fine museums and parks of Milwaukee?

Decisions, decisions, decisions. I bid you to visit whether you are interested in a glimpse of rural America, fine art, or history. Somewhere over the hill or on the other side of the lake you’ll find it here. (You can even walk on water — in the winter.)

  1. Where I live in Eau Claire, Wisconsin also lives award winner authors, Grammy winners too. Along the lovely Chippewa River, the largest lumber companies, tire plants and computer companies were created. Yes, the best cheese in the world is made nearby too and the Great River Road gpes through my hometown. Let’s do some more traveling in Wisconsin, Ellen. We’ve only seen a morsel.

  2. Open to suggestions.
