Trouble Brewing

It looks like one of our volcanoes is going to get rowdy in the near future! This is a great aerial shot of Mount Augustine taken two days ago, the most southernly of our Cook Inlet volcanoes. The Alaska Volcano Observatory has a fantastic website here where you can keep an eye on all Alaskan volcano activity. For Mount Augustine they have satellite imagery and a webcam view from the end of the Homer Spit!

I have been up here long enough to see several eruptions that were major enough to result in ash fall where I lived - I actually have a jar of ash I collected from a Mount Spur eruption. It sure makes the snow look dirty when it happens in winter!

I see you have posted before I got the chance. That volcanoe info was interesting. Ya I bet the now looks dirty.
