Pavlof, rising above low plains to its NW, is one of Alaska's most active volcanoes. It is part of a NNE-SSW-trending line of volcanoes near the tip of the Alaskan Peninsula. Little Pavlof is the small cone on the mid-right horizon. The low saddle to the left separates Pavlof from Pavlof Sister, whose lower flanks are seen at the extreme left.
