Davidof Island is seen here across a strait from the western side of Little Sitkin Island. Five small islands, the largest of which is Davidof, are remnants of a volcano that collapsed during the late Tertiary to form a 2.7-km-wide caldera. The islands include Khvostof (top-right horizon), Pyramid, Lopy, and Davidof. The latter three islands form the eastern rim of the caldera.
