Artist's Description

What appeared as plumes of steam could be seen on this very active volcano. On further investigation our suspicions were confirmed. We had witnessed the breath of a mountain.

From AVO website – ’No significant changes have been observed at Redoubt volcano this week (7th Aug2009). Seismicity remains low. Web camera and satellite views were mostly obscured by clouds over the past week, but occasional clear images showed continuing steam and gas emissions.

Heavily ice-mantled Redoubt volcano is located on the western side of Cook Inlet, 170 km (106 mi) southwest of Anchorage and 82 km (51 mi) west of Kenai, within Lake Clark National Park. Redoubt is a stratovolcano which rises to 10,197 feet above sea level.Recent eruptions occurred in 1902, 1966-68, 1989-90, and 2009. The 1989-90 and 2009 eruptions produced mudflows, or lahars, that traveled down the Drift River and partially flooded the Drift River Oil Terminal facility. The ash plumes produced by the 1989-90 and 2009 eruptions significantly disrupted air traffic and resulted in minor or trace amounts of ash in the city of Anchorage and other communities in south-central and interior Alaska.’ (Source – Alaska Volcano Observatory Weekly Update Friday, August 7, 2009 10:59 AM AKDT)
