Details for: Wrangell
Mount Wrangell, a 4317-m-high andesitic shield volcano on the right skyline, is the only one in the Wrangell volcanic field to have had documented historical activity. Two large calderas truncate the summit; the inner ice-filled caldera contains 3 craters. Minor, possibly phreatic eruptions have occurred during the 20th century. At left is rounded Mount Zanetti, a 3965-m-tall flank cone; the sharp-topped peak at the extreme left of this view from the SW is a flank cone of the neighboring Pleistocene Mount Drum volcano.
