The correct answer is USA.

  • The Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes is a valley within Katmai National Park and a Preserve in Alaska.
  • The valley 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 had explored the volcano's aftermath for the National Geographic Society in 1916. 
  • He 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."

  • Alaska is a U.S. state on the northwest extremity of the country's West Coast.
  • It is a semi-exclave of the U.S,  it borders the Canadian province of British Columbia and the territory of Yukon to the east.
  • It has a maritime border with Russia's Chukotka Autonomous Okrug to the west, just across the Bering Strait.
  • Katmai National Park and Preserve is an American national park and preserve in southern Alaska, notable for the Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes and for its brown bears.
