Yet, in an amazing display of natures capacity for renewal, life in the surrounding area not only continues but flourishes. Visit Katmai National Park which today contains the highest density of brown bears in the world. Observe extraordinary salmon runs and thriving grasses amidst a breathtaking landscape. Discover the story of one of the largest volcanic eruptions in human history and see how a barren wasteland of ash and lava can once again find life in Alaska's Deadly Volcano.
