Mount Recheschnoi has been extensively eroded by glaciers and is located on Umnak Island. This 1985 view from the SW shows the NE-SW-trending summit ridge, which is contains deep valleys. Holocene cones and lava domes occur on the east and west flanks, and a large thermal area including hot springs and a geyser is found on the NE flank.
