It seems Southcentral Alaska has been granted a respite. There have only been low level emissions of steam, volcanic gases, and ash emitted from Mt. Redoubt today. A volcanic haze still lingers over the Kenai Peninsula, Anchorage, and the Matanuska-Susitna Valley as an admonition of caution.
As an addition to these images of a pristine ReDoubt taken just prior to the current eruption cycle, here are some links for your perusal during this hiatus: Erin, Bob, Carla, Heart, Bohemian Girl, Phelan, and Sophmom. Enjoy!
