Katmai National Park and Preservein Anchorage, United States

#1of 1 places to visitin Anchorage
An ideal place for photo hunting on brown bears, but it's better not to approach really close because they can consider that you are more savory than salmon :)
Katmai National Park and Preserve, Anchorage
The Preserve and the Kathmai National Park is located in the southern part of Alaska, opposite the Kodiak island. The park includes mountains, rivers, a group of lakes and eighteen volcanoes. The pearl of the reserve is a huge active volcano Kathmai, with a height of 2,047 meters above sea level, in the crater of which, as a result of the eruption 105 years ago, a lake of surprising beauty was formed.

Another feature of the volcano is that its western slope is devoid of any vegetation. Valley of ten thousand smokes was affected by the eruption and for decades resembled a cauldron fontaining with steam and gas, and now is covered with a layer of ash.

But the main attraction for tourists in the park is the Brooks Falls. It is here that from June to October, moose and brown bears gather (there are more than 2000 spices here) to hunt salmon.
