Details for: St. Paul Island
Crater Hill on the western side of St. Paul is one of many pyroclastic cones dotting the island. The crater, which contains an elongated lake, is seen here from the NE. St. Paul, the largest of the Pribilof Islands, consists of a 110 sq km area of coalescing small basaltic shield volcanoes capped by a central cinder cone. The Fox Hill lava flow at the far western end of the island is estimated to be only a few thousand years old. Photo by Art Sowls, 1988 (U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service).
