AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :
Wrangell is a remote town in southeastern Alaska with a population of around 2,300. It is situated on the northern end of Wrangell Island, one of the larger islands amongst the 1,000+ that make up the Alexander Archipelago. The town and island of Wrangell were initially populated by the Tlingit, a native people who settled into the archipelago thousands of years ago. In this 4K video by AirVuz contributor and pilot Drone Alaska, you'll get a bird's eye view of this beautiful part of America's 49th state.
The location is Wrangell Alaska. Nestled in the Inside Passage this is just one of many equally beautiful destinations along the great Alaska Marine Highway System. There are no roads connecting these Island communities. Residence of Southeast Alaska rely heavily on this network of ferries for affordable transportation between small towns and villages. This marine highway is connecting these areas to each other and the rest of the state. Due to budget cuts this Marine Highway System's route is scheduled to be cancelled September 2019 leaving Wrangell and many communities alike, cut off only to be accessible by plane and small boat. These Ferries are the lifeblood of the area and essential to the Southeastern Alaskan way of life.
