Details for: Pavlof
Pavlof volcano, rising above low plains to its NW, is one of Alaska's most active volcanoes. It is part of a NNE-SSW-trending line of volcanoes near the tip of the Alaskan Peninsula. The knob on the middle right horizon is Little Pavlof, a subsidiary peak of Pavlof. The low saddle at the left separates Pavlof from Pavlof Sister, whose lower flanks are seen at the extreme left.
