Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes

Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes, is a spectacular 40 sq mile, 100 – 700 ft deep ash flow deposited by Novarupta Volcano in 1912. Part of Katmai National Park & Preserve, established in 1980, today the area is still famous for volcanoes, but also for brown bears, pristine waterways with abundant fish, remote wilderness, and a rugged coastline.
