Katmai National Park and Preserve
A year ago, my husband and I took a day trip to Katmai National Park and Preserve. It’s not as well-known as some national parks in Alaska, but it is a fascinating one.
Katmai National Park was created in 1918 to protect the land affected by the Novarupta volcanic eruption. Later, it expanded to include roughly 9,000 years of human history and habitat for salmon and bears. Most visitors go to Brooks Camp to view the brown bears feasting on salmon at the Brooks River. That’s what we got to do on our day trip there. Here are a few photos for you.
