There are many extraordinary mountains in Alaska, but this one is exceptionally cool. Mount Redoubt, or Redoubt Volcano, is a very active stratovolcano in the Aluetian Range of Alaska. The active volcano is dangerously close to Anchorage and climbs a drastic 10,197 feet in only five miles! Such a height makes it the tallest peak in its range. Mount Redoubt has been very active since its first observation and remains a prominent threat to those within its blast range. Learn more about this Alaskan volcano and why it’s such a big deal!
