Photo Gallery

Frosty volcano is the youngest of two large volcanic structures of the Cold Bay volcanic complex, about 15 km SW of Cold Bay at the tip of the Alaska Peninsula. Frosty Peak is a symmetrical late-Pleistocene to Holocene stratovolcano that is constructed within the southernmost of two coalescing craters and forms the high point of the volcanic complex.
