Photo Gallery

Elovsky is the highest of a cluster of small shield volcanoes NE of Shishel volcano. The Ozernovsky cinder cone (right), located NE of Elovsky, was the source of the massive early Holocene Ozernovsky lava flow, which traveled to the ESE down a glacially dissected valley on the flanks of the Sredinny Range. The massive flow dammed tributary valleys, creating several lakes near the headwaters of the Levaya and Pravaya Ozeraya rivers and forming a lava field covering an area of 100 sq km.
