A brown, irregularly shaped volcanic mountain  rises above a valley. The sky is blue with few clouds. Did You Know?
In 1912, one of the most violent eruptions ever recorded occurred in the wilderness of Katmai National Park & Preserve. The blast collapsed 7,500 foot Mount Katmai to its present elevation of 6,716 feet. In the resulting Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes, fumaroles issued steam hot enough to melt zinc.
