Alaska is the largest state in the USA and, in addition to the Hawaiian Islands , also the youngest. Despite strong immigration, Alaska ranks 3rd in the ranking of countries by population. Alaska also includes the volcanic islands of the Aleutians and the island of Kodiak with a huge bear species. The northern third of the country lies beyond the Arctic Circle. See Alaska abbreviation.
The first inhabitants of America reached Alaska across the Bering Strait, then covered with glaciers, about 30,000 years ago. Their descendants, the Eskimos and the Aleutians, still inhabit more remote parts of the state. In the 18th century, the first European settlers also came from Russia, and Alaska was under the control of Russian-American society until United States Secretary of State Henry Seward (1801-1872) negotiated in 1867 to buy Alaska from Russia for 7.2 million. dollars.
Since then, Alaska has seen several waves of immigrants, lured by its vast mineral wealth and large facilities, such as the Trans-Alaskan oil pipeline. Cities like Anchorage in the south and Fairbanks in the center of the country grew rapidly and became the most important concentrations of population. However, most of Alaska is occupied by vast and beautiful wilderness.
In 1980, Katmai National Park was established in Alaska and covers an area of 15,000 km2. It is one of the most beautiful corners of nature, which has been unaffected by modern times and almost untouched by man due to its poor accessibility. There are 15 active volcanoes in the park, which makes this place one of the most active on Earth. Therefore, frequent earthquakes are no exception. In 1912, the volcano Novarupta Volcano erupted here.
Its eruption was up to ten times stronger than the Mt. Saint Helens in 1980, when a pressure wave of 1120 km / h threw trees up to 25 kilometers away. That’s when Mt. Saint Helens by its tip and so today it has the form of a truncated cone. In 1912, however, the dust from the Novarupto volcano hit the atmosphere of almost the entire northern hemisphere. The 65 km2 area was buried under a 200-meter-high layer of ash.
This created the Valley of Ten Thousand Smokers, which are characterized by wrinkled narrow gorges. These were created by rivers flowing down from the mountains. Tourists should be very careful about rivers and streams in this area. Overcoming them can often be very dangerous, in muddy water it is not possible to estimate how deep the water is. Although the stream appears to be shallow, it can actually be several tens of meters deep. However, these rivers are a popular destination for fishermen, as they are rich in fish, especially salmon. There is a regular bus service from these to Brooks Camp.
The highest points are Mount Denison (2304 m), Snowy Mts. (2148 m), Mount Katmai (2030 m) and Kukak Volcano (2025 m). Their peaks cover the Hook, Hallo and Serpent Tongue glaciers. The last time the Fourpeaked Volcano was heard in the national park was in 2006, but it did not cause any serious damage. In addition to numerous volcanoes, brown bears are also the main symbol of the local landscape. They are protected by the state and a respectable 750 of them live in the national park.
They are most often seen at Brook Falls, Hallo Bay, Kukak Bay and Chiniak. However, one of the most interesting places to observe is undoubtedly the waterfall on the river Mc.Niel.
They like to fish in local rivers and enjoy the already mentioned salmon. The bears move here from a wide area to gather fat supplies for the long Alaskan winter. There is plenty of food in the river, so bears are tolerated and hunted quietly side by side. It is said that nowhere else in the world can you see so many bears in one place. Of course, not only bears live in Katmai, but also elk, caribou, lynx and other wild animals.
People go to the park mainly for hiking, fishing, photography, river rafting and many other activities. There are also several archeological sites in the park, which attracts scientists and experts from all over the world. Remote areas of the park can only be reached by plane from Anchorage. The journey to King Salmon takes about an hour and a half, from where you can take seaplanes deeper into nature, for example to Lake Naknek. There is a camp by the lake where it is possible to stay. However, the capacity of the camp is limited due to the great interest of fishermen and photographers, so it is necessary to book accommodation at least half a year in advance. However, it is also necessary to take into account that the time of stay in the camp is limited to 5 days a year.
