Mrs LarsenMrs Larsen witnessed the Katmai eruption of 1912 from Kodiak. That eruption was one of the largest volcanic eruptions in the 20th century. My friend Ed and I stayed at her place whilst we were completing a construction project. She was a fiery woman and was living on her own out there in this remote place. Larsen Bay is named after one of her ancestors – an early explorer in this area.
