Just when you're wondering what to post for the Geology Picture of the Week, something new pops up. IN this case, some aerial shots of volcanoes in Alaska. The link above goes to the site; three examples below.

Shishaldin, Fuji of the Aleutians
TOPICS: Arts/Photography; Education; Outdoors; Science
KEYWORDS: alaska; glaciers; shishaldin; volcanoes
Good weather like this does not happen very often in the Aleutian Islands.

That is a great example of an orographic cap cloud on St. Augustine volcano.

(Some people are like slinkys. Useless, but if you throw them down the stairs, you smile.)
Been there and they are beautiful to see. Thanks for the memories.

And they look so neat, so straight as little stripes on the glacier - until you get close......
