As the Alaska Peninsula reaches out between the Bering Sea and the Gulf of Alaska toward the Aleutian Islands, it’s hard to miss the Katmai National Park and Preserve.  That’s because it covers over 4 million acres. It is named after the volcano Mount Katmai,and is home to six active volcanoes. It is also home to over two thousand brown bears, which accounts for a lot of the park’s popularity. Picture bears scooping salmon from mountain creeks.

The topographic scale model of Katmai National Park details the Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes, a 40 square mile lava flow, the Mount Katmai crater lake, and many other features in this large scale terrain model.
