The census says that Wrangell's population is 2300, and the 3 harbors have 1500 slips. The commercial fishing fleet is alive and well. We walk to the main street, which is about a mile away to go to the hardware store, the grocery store, and the post office. We found out that the grocery store will give us a ride back to the harbor with our purchases. How cool.

We have had fun reading the signs, seeing the sights, and enjoying the local sense of humor.

|Halloween Day in Wrangell|
We rented a car one day, and drove out on the logging road as close as we could get to our property. After parking, we hiked till we reached an un-fordable creek, and had to hike back.
|Our property is down in the grove of trees.|
|Almost to our bay.|

|Our property up into the woods on the right side of the bay, but before the clear cut area.|
|Best picture I could get while hanging onto the fishing rod.|
|There is a public use cabin in the woods on the right.|
