This page shows Wrangell, Alaska. Wrangell is a small town that is missed by most cruise ships. Too bad for them.

The people at the Stikine Restaurant were very friendly and accomodated my husband's special diet needs as best they could.

We spent almost four days in Wrangell. Town is pretty compact so we walked almost all the time. When we went to and from the airport and the ferry terminal, we got a ride from Bruce, owner and operator of the Sourdough Lodge where we stayed.
While we walked about town, we started recognizing some of the locals and they waved and greeted us as we passed.
Crows are all around town. There was at least one that hung out in the downtown area that cawed and then beeped like a Toyota (or was it a Nissan?) when you use your key to unlock it. Made me look a few times. When I figured it out, we laughed and then enjoyed the mimicry each time we heard it. It was funny to hear that sound when it came from high in the trees.
Go to Wrangell to enjoy the relatively unhurried pace of life here. It's not a ritzy place, but it's real. It has its own kind of charm. Watching the tides is amazing!
What is your next adventure?
