As an Alaska specialist, we are regularly updated by Alaska Tourism with news and views, and it was interesting to receive their latest newsletter which talked about the Valley of 10,000 Smokes. I have copied in their text below, but have particularly highlighted this because we have been discussing recently bears and bear viewing, both on the blog, on the website and in the office. The Valley of 10,000 Smokes is accessible from Brooks Falls – one of the best places in Alaska to view bears. Here is their text:

Alaska is steeped in history, from engineering marvels and marks of war to the profound impact of natural disasters that shaped the landscape of the Last Frontier. In 2012 and 2013, Alaska celebrates a number of significant milestones in its fascinating history. This year marks the centennial of the eruption of the Novarupta volcano, which created the Valley of 10,000 Smokes and led to the establishment of Katmai National Park and Preserve. Today, Katmai is known for some of the best bear viewing in the state as well as the impressive valley of once-steaming cracks and fissures. 2012 also marks the 70th anniversary of the Alaska Highway, which was constructed during World War II. The highway runs from Dawson Creek, British Columbia to the junction with the Richardson Highway in Delta Junction, Alaska, and offers travelers a number of recreational and scenic points of interest.
