Mariner's Trail along Lake MichiganThis weekend I am going to take some time and squeeze in another journey into Wisconsin. There is a city on the edge of one of the greatest of the Great Lakes – Michigan – by the name of Manitowoc, to which I have wanted to journey. The name itself has the ring of Native American Heritage. The Indians called it mune-owk, and it meant “spirited land.” Manitowoc hugs the shoreline of Lake Michigan; it is a city of about 35,000 people and one of the cleanest I have visited. My assumption is that the residents take great pride in their city as well as their personal residences. Its heritage is one of rich maritime history, fur trading and the lumber industry. It is this trip that I wish to describe to you.
