Seen Around Talkeetna

A Visitor Center for Talkeetna is located at the junction of the Talkeetna Spur Road and the Parks Highway. It was closed and didn't look very active

but we managed to find the town by following the map.

Lots of other people had also been successful finding the town, but they were all walking down the street because they couldn't find the missing sidewalks. They were apparently successful finding a parking place - we weren't.  Lynne told me it would be this way, but...

We did find a grass airstrip with no parking, a different asphalt airstrip that is the base for planes flying tourists and climbers to Ruth Glacier, 

and the lake where the float plane tours are based.

We found a place that purported to have the answers

but still couldn't figure out how they get this plane out of its shelter.

Talkeetna looks like a town that might be fun to walk through, but it really doesn't work well for vehicles pulling trailers.
