The Redoubt volcano is making its presence known. It has played havoc with some petroleum infrastructure (Drift River Oil Terminal) and has begun to dump ash. Lahar activity has flooded a runway and generally made a mess. The photos below do not show the volcano in a major eruption. Most of the AVO/USGS close up shots seem to be taken when the mountain is quiet.
