00 Photograph by R. F . Griggs MOUNT KATMAI, WITH ONE BRANCH OF KATMAI RIVER IN THE FOREGROUND Mount Katmai is exactly what it appears-a mere stump of the former mountain, which was completely disemboweled in the eruption. The great arc at the top is the rim of a gigantic crater within. The peaceful steam clouds now floating up from the crater compared with the devas tating blast which once issued from it are like the wisps of smoke issuing from the cannon's mouth after the projectile has been fired (see p. 49).
