Description: In June, 1930, Father Hubbard (1931) witnessed ash explosions from the western intracaldera cone of Mount Veniaminof. He climbed Mount Veniaminof and recorded: "Here and there, at the base of the 2,000-foot cliffs on which we stood, the ice yawned away in impressive chasms, where the heat of the mountain melted the encroaching glacier. Strangest of all was the cone in the center, packed in ice and smoking on two sides of its upbuilt rim from slag heaps of lava, and now and then coughing out black ashes over the surrounding white snows."
