My job allows me to visit a lot of Alaska on a yearly basis. I wanted to capture the trips in one location!

Home 4 hours and headed south to Wrangell, Alaska

on November 26, 2012

I had been invited to Wrangell to work with their school board on Monday night, Nov. 19th.  Only glitch, we landed from Maui at 9:30 that morning!   I made it work! Though I was a tad tired by Monday night!

Wrangell is yet another small, isolated community in Southeast Alaska.  It is known as the entrance to the  mighty Stikine River and their petroglyphs that can be seen on a walk along the shores of Petroglyph Beach.  I did not do that this trip, BUT did it several summers ago when I went there with an Elderhostel trip.

The community is quite close-knit and the people are wonderful.  I ate at Diamond’s for breakfast and it was like stepping back in time.  Next time I hope for more time to explore the town.

    Petroglyphs are pretty cool. I saw quite a few when I was dual sporting in Utah last spring. That spiral form is one that I saw in UT. I wonder how much similarity there would be between Alaskan and other petroglyphs.
