The Makushin Volcano (alternatively Mount Makushin) is a stratovolcano on the Alaska Peninsula. Makushin is a Russian name, probably derived from the word "makushka", meaning "the crown (of the head)" or "top," and applied to this feature because it is the highest point on Unalaska Island. This volcano was called "Ognedyshushchaya Gora" meaning "burning mountain" by Sarichev on a 1792 map. ...more on Wikipedia about "Makushin Volcano"

The undissected stratovolcano of Amukta volcano makes up most of nearly circular, 7.7-km-wide Amukta Island. The cone, about 5.8 km in basal diameter and topped by a 0.4 km wide summit crater, appears on synthetic-aperture radar imagery to be built upon a 300+ meter high, east-west trending arcuate ridge. Extensions of that ridge on the southwest and east sides of the island indicate an older caldera approximately 6 km in diameter and open to the sea on the south side. No hot springs or fumaroles have been reported from Amukta. Sekora (1973, p. 29) reports the presence of a cinder cone near the northeastern shore of the island. ...more on Wikipedia about "Mount Amukta"

Mount Cleveland is a mountain that forms the western half of Chuginadak Island in the central Aleutian Islands of Alaska. This symmetrical stratovolcano has been the site of numerous eruptions in the last two centuries; the most recent eruption occurred in 1994. In 1944, a U.S. Army serviceman was reportedly killed by an eruption from Mount Cleveland. ...more on Wikipedia about "Mount Cleveland (Alaska)"
Mount Douglas is a stratovolcano located south of Kamishak Bay at the northern part of the Alaska Peninsula. The mountain was officially named in 1906 after nearby Cape Douglas based on a 1904 report by USGS geologist G. C. Martin. ...more on Wikipedia about "Mount Douglas (Alaska)"

Mount Edgecumbe is the current name of a long-dormant volcano located on Kruzof Island, Alaska, USA. It had for centuries been known to the native Tlingit people as L'UX, and was given the name Mount San Jacinto by Spanish explorer Juan de la Bodega in 1775. It was subsequently renamed by British Captain James Cook in 1778, probably for George, Earl of Edgecumbe. ...more on Wikipedia about "Mount Edgecumbe (Alaska)"

Mount Griggs, formerly known as Knife Peak Volcano, is a stratovolcano, which lies 10 km behind the volcanic arc defined by other Katmai group volcanoes. Although no historic eruptions have been reported from Mount Griggs, vigorously active fumaroles persist in a summit crater and along the upper southwest flank. The fumaroles on the southwest flank are the hottest, and some of the flank fumaroles can roar so loudly that they can be heard from the valley floor. The slopes of Mount Griggs are heavily mantled by fallout from the 1912 eruption of Novarupta volcano. ...more on Wikipedia about "Mount Griggs"

Iliamna Volcano is a glacier-carved volcanic peak located approximately 215 km (134 mi) southwest of Anchorage on the west side of lower Cook Inlet. Holocene eruptive activity from Iliamna is little known, but radiocarbon dating seems to indicate at least a few eruptions, all before the European settlement of Alaska. However, fumaroles located at about 2,740 m (8,990 ft) elevation on the eastern flank produce nearly constant plumes of condensate and minor amounts of sulfurous gases. These plumes are quite vigorous and have resulted in numerous pilot reports and early historical accounts of "eruptions" at Iliamna Volcano. ...more on Wikipedia about "Mount Iliamna"
Mount Kaguyak is a volcano located in the northeastern part of the Katmai National Park in Alaska. The 2.5 km wide caldera is filled by a more than 180 m deep crater lake. The surface of the crater lake lies about 550 m below the rim of the caldera. Postcaldera lava domes form a prominent peninsula in the center of the lake. Even though the volcano is only 901 m high it is spectacular, because it rises from lowland areas near sea level in the south of the Big River. Based on radiocarbon dating the caldera-forming eruption occurred about 3600 years ago. ...more on Wikipedia about "Mount Kaguyak"
Mount Kanaga is located about 25 km (16 mi) west of the U.S. Navy installation and port on Adak Island in the Aleutian Islands. The volcano erupted intermittently through much of 1994, dusting the community of Adak at least once with fine ash. ...more on Wikipedia about "Mount Kanaga"
Mount Katmai is a large stratovolcano about 10 km in diameter with a central lake-filled caldera about 4.5 by 3 km in area. The caldera rim has a maximum elevation of 2247 m and in 1975 the lake surface was at an elevation of about 1286 m. The estimated elevation of the caldera floor is about 1036 m. The volcano is one of five vents encircling the Novarupta dome, source of the voluminous pyroclastic flows erupted in 1912. It consists chiefly of lava flows, pyroclastic rocks, and non-welded to agglutinated air fall. The Quaternary volcanic rocks at Katmai and adjacent cones are less than 1500 m thick. Much of the volcano is mantled by snow and ice and several valley glaciers radiate out from the flanks and three glaciers originating from the upper caldera walls descend into the crater to the lake. Katmai volcano is built on the sedimentary rocks of the Naknek Formation of Late Jurassic age, which are exposed just west of the caldera rim at an elevation of about 1520 m, as well as north and southeast of the crater. Sedimentary rocks have been reported at an elevation of over 1800 m in the west wall of the caldera and near the bottom of the eastern wall (1036 m). ...more on Wikipedia about "Mount Katmai"
