Expert Live Chat: Bears & Dumpling Mountain

Climb Dumpling Mountain tomorrow – Tuesday, October 14th – and join Ranger Mike, Aaron and Landis for a Live Chat from the top of the mountain here. The team will be discussing Katmai’s Land and Lakes from 2pm – 3pm AK (that’s 3pm Pacific start time and 6pm Eastern).

From high on Dumpling Mountain (elev 2440′, 744m) you can see all of Brooks Camp, and much of the surrounding country. On a clear day you can even see the active volcanoes that border the Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes.
