  • The sun is just about to drip below the mountains across the Cook Inlet. Mount Redoubt has it's usual steam cap on. Last night I was up at Bob's house for sunset. It was just as Bob said it would be. I zoomed my video camera full in just to the left of the summit of Mount Redoubt. I could clearly see intermittent streams of steam rising. Small columns. Redoubt is rarely without a cap due to the venting steam. Part of the "Ring of Fire." Bob told me that one calm evening he counted no fewer than 90 columns of steam rising straight up into the sky from the many volcanic mountains across the Cook Inlet.
