Aerial view of the erupting intracaldera cone at Veniaminof, August 18, 2013. This photo shows new lava flows produced since the eruption started on June 13, 2013. These flows (here roughly 3000 feet in length) have descended the southwest flank of the cone and traveled onto the ash-covered snow and icefield. Melting of the snow and ice has created the depressions beneath the young flows. A small puff of ash rises from the active vent. Photo taken by Game McGimsey, AVO/USGS. Overflight to Veniaminof co-sponsored by the National Geographic Society.
