  • You turn left on Graves Street. The boardwalk starts at the end of the street. Once you get on the beach, you will find the petroglyphs. Look to the right and follow the rocks out. I enjoyed...

  • This is a special place looking at the shapes in the rock you have to look very closely to see the shapes but once you find them is quite special and wonder who and what they mean.

  • A great walk on the beach of Wrangell Alaska, interesting ancient carvings and just a little further up the old town dump - hundreds of thousands of old broken bottles and other valuable artifacts.
  • Very pretty especially on a sunny day. Not every beach comes with an little tour on some history of the location this beach does. Nice ramp down to the beach. Not a ton of parking.
