Caption: Pumice cliff in the Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes, a valley within Katmai National Park and Preserve in Alaska which is filled with ash flow from the eruption of Novarupta on June 6-8, 1912. Following the eruption, thousands of fumaroles vented steam from the ash. Robert F. Griggs, who explored the volcano's aftermath for the National Geographic Society in 1916, gave the valley its name, saying that the whole valley as far as the eye could reach was full of hundreds, no thousands--literally, tens of thousands--of smokes curling up from its fissured floor.
