East Central Wisconsin from Fond du Lac
We decided to take a little down time and catch up on business in Fond du Lac. Well, to be honest, we were worried that we couldn't find a campground for Labor Day Weekend, so we hunkered down at the Fond du Lac County Fairground for a week and toured the area. There is some great history all around this area of Wisconsin, many towns built on the riches of the lumber industry. Fond du Lac is not that far west of Lake Michigan, so we hit Sheboygan, Manitowoc, then over to Lake Winnebago and more. Hover over the photos for more information, or click to go to the gallery for purchase and downloads.
