This is the Blue Tarp, stories of Alaska’s Susitna Valley as told by those who lived them. Join us today as we wrap up our first season with two buildings that used to form part of daily life for many in Downtown Talkeetna, but today have been lost to time. Whether you’re an old timer or a newcomer, there’s room under the Blue Tarp for everyone.
Unlike last episode, where our journey back in time also took us west across the Susitna River, today we stay on Main Street in Talkeetna. The first location we’ll be visiting that’s no longer around would have been on your left as you walk down the street toward the river, near where B Street leads to the Walter Harper Talkeetna Ranger Station. Once, a place that locals referred to as “The Bucket of Blood” stood there.
