Guide to the Volcanoes of the Western Wrangell Mountains, Alaska

Magnificent, breathtaking views of snow-covered Wrangell Mountain peaks await every visitor to this part of Alaska. Mount Wrangell itself, a massive shield-shaped volcano and namesake of the range, still signals its active presence with steam plumes, while nearby, Mounts Sanford, Drum, and Blackburn lie dormant.
