Photo Gallery

Glaciers descend the steep southern face of Visokoi Island from the flat-topped summit of 1005-m-high Mount Hodson. Wordie Point (left) and Irving Point (right) lie respectively at the west and east sides of the 6 x 8 km wide island. Numerous basaltic scoria cones were constructed on the lower flanks of the island, which is part of the Traverse Islands in the northern part of the South Sandwich Island chain. Possible eruptive activity was reported during 1830 and 1930, and the summit is often obscured by "smoke" or steam.
