The beautifully symmetrical Mount Cleveland forms the western half of Chuginadak Island. The 1730-m stratovolcano is one of the most active volcanoes of the Aleutian Islands. This July 24, 1994, view from the west shows the summit region darkened by ashfall that may have originated from an eruption reported on May 25. Dark lava flows from earlier eruptions can be seen on the flanks of the volcano.

side of the uninhabited, dumbbell-shaped Chuginadak Island. Chuginadak volcano and an unnamed volcano
form the east side of the island. Mt. Cleveland is almost perfectly
symmetrical and 5 miles (8 km) wide at its base. It is also one of the
most active volcanoes in the Aleutians.
