The Hidden Jewel

I am a photographer and a long time Wrangell resident who likes to record and share the surrounding scenic beauty with the World.The view is toward mainland with Stikine river delta visible in background.

Picturesque Wrangell harbor is within walking distance of downtown and is important to local economy and lifestyle. Famous Shakes island with a Tlingit tribal house and totems is located in the middle of the harbor, accessible by a long bridge.

Wyatt Earp, who served here briefly as a deputy, called Wrangell "hell on wheels". Today downtown Wrangell still has its western style charm but is friendly and safe.
