The summit crater of glacier-covered Mount Mageik appears in the foreground of this 1978 view looking NE across Katmai Pass to Trident volcano. These two volcanoes stand guard at the head of the Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes. Mageik's young crater contains a shallow turbulent lake. The fresh, black lava flows descending the SW flank of Trident volcano were emplaced in a series of eruptions during 1953-1966.
