A steam plume is a nearly constant feature at the summit of Mount Martin, seen here from the NE in the Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes. Martin volcano is extensively covered by glaciers, but is only moderately dissected. Its youngest and largest lava flow traveled from the summit 12 km down the upper Angle Creek valley, behind the ridge at the right. The slopes at the left are the northern flank of Mount Mageik.
