In southern Alaska, Katmai National Park and Preserve occupies a vast peninsula with wild landscapes spanning tundra, forests, lakes, mountains, and volcanoes. The park is an important habitat for brown bears that are drawn to the abundant salmon in Brooks Falls. Lookout platforms at adjacent Brooks Camp offer a close-up view of the bears. The Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes is an area of lava flows and ash formed by a massive volcanic eruption.
