One of the most iconic images of Katmai National Park is that of Alaskan brown bears catching sockeye salmon along Brooks River every July and September. Fattening up for winter hibernation is an essential part of the lifecycle of bears…and a spectacular tourist attraction for park visitors (from a safe distance, of course).  With more than 2200 bears in the park, Katmai is one of the best bear-viewing locations in the world!  In this fun-to-knit hat, five wilderness-inspired colors come together in a classic design with images of bears, salmon, and trees.  So Alaskan!
