Family, friends and fragrance in Michigan


Pamela O’Meara photo • The SS Badger, a National Historic Landmark, pulls into Ludington, after crossing Lake Michigan from Manitowoc, Wisconsin. It was launched in 1953 to ferry railroad cars across the lake. Now it’s a car ferry for people wishing to shorten their trip across the lake.
