“The Iliuk Arm of Naknek Lake Katmai 1998”
This image is of Katmai National Park (Naknek Lake). Katmai is home to some
of the most photographed bears in the world because of the famous falls
viewing area where dozens of griz congregate during salmon runs. Katmai
park, and particularly its air and water quality will be impacted by the
nearby development of the Pebble mine, proposed to be the largest open-pit copper and cyanide gold-leach mining complex in the world.
