Have you ever heard of “The Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes”? It's an incredible chapter in Alaska history.
Yes I lived at corner of gambrell & 14th street and was in front room facing west when large blue cloud came in.By noon as all dark & ash started raining down.It destroyed our large garden & killed all the birds
In late 50's moved to King Salmon AK and a Bush pilot took several of us to the VALLEY OF 10,OOO SMOKES.This was the most impressive trip in my life!
Michael – Very interesting. Thank you for sharing what happened. The Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes must have looked remarkable back then.
George – thank you for sharing this link.
