Photo Gallery

Hoodoo Mountain, as seen from the SE across the Iskut River in northwestern British Columbia, is a flat-topped stratovolcano. It has an ice cap 3 km in diameter and has had several periods of subglacial eruptions. Most of the volcanic deposits at Hoodoo Mountain are lava flows. The oldest eruptions of the volcano occurred about 100,000 years ago and the most recent eruptions about 9000 years ago. Hoodoo Mountain volcanic complex is one of the largest peralkaline volcanoes in the northern Cordilleran volcanic province.
