DESCRIPTION
From Smithsonian Institution (online database, accessed 2004): "A small unnamed lava dome and an associated lava flow about 30 km east of Becharof Lake and 8 km NW of Alinchak Bay are not significantly modified by glacial erosion. Detterman et al. (1987) [1] suggested a Holocene age for the small dome, whose summit lies only about 300 m above sea level."
