About Ketchikan

Ketchikan is the most south eastern city in Alaska, located on Revillagigedo Island in the Ketchikan Gateway Borough of Alaska, United States. Ketchikan got its name from the Ketchikan Creek, which flows through the town, emptying into the Tongass Narrows a short distance southeast of its downtown. Tlingit natives used Ketchikan Creek as a summer fish camp before the town was established by Mike Martin in 1885. The economy of Ketchikan is split between tourism, government services and commercial fishing. In the past government official have dubbed Ketchikan as the "Salmon Capital of the World". The harvesting of pulp use to contribute largely to the economy until 1997 when the Ketchikan Pulp Company pulp mill closed. This was mostly due to the 1990 act where by timber harvesting was reduced in the national forest.

One of the most popular attractions is The Misty Fiords National Monument which lies approximately 40 miles east of Ketchikan, comprising 2,294,343 acres of Tongass National Forest. Other popular attractions include the world's largest collection of standing totem poles, found throughout the city of Ketchikan. Ketchikan even has a Totem Heritage Centre!

About Wrangell

Wrangell is a borough in Alaska, USA, with a population of around 2,500 people. Native American Tlingit people lived in the Wrangell area centuries before Europeans, making Wrangell one of the oldest towns in Alaska. In the late 1880s, Wrangell served as a jumping-off point for gold rushes up the Stikine River and at one point the legendary Wyatt Earp worked as a volunteer marshal here. Another famous visitor to the area was "Father of the National Parks" John Muir, an early advocate for the preservation of wilderness in the United States, who wrote of Wrangell that: "the town, like the landscape, rests beneath a hazy, hushing, Indian-summerish spell."
