Petroglyph Beach plus traveling to Wrangell

When we left Ketchikan we headed north to Santa Anna Inlet, we were once again treated to Humpback whales, Dall porpoises and Eagles. The days are still sunny which means poor sailing but beautiful scenery. After a day of rest in Santa Anna, we headed for Wrangell through Zomovia Strait. Wrangell’s population is 1900 and the primary industries are crab, shrimp and fish processing.

I walked to Petroglyph Beach to view the Petroglyphs believed to have been made by Tlingit Indians over 1,000 years ago. There were over 40 on the beach, I found only 2, startled a bald eagle we both jumped, well I jumped he flew away. This is a friendly small town with everything you need to be comfortable.
