This Rare Phenomenon In Alaska Is Unlike Anything You’ve Ever Seen

Sure, everyone know about volcanoes. But do you know about “mud volcanoes”? Less glamorous than lava spurting through the air, mud volcanoes are an extremely rare phenomenon, and Alaska happens to have several. On the flanks of a mountain in Eastern Alaska lies a series of three mud volcanoes called the Klawasi Group. Head to this remote part of Alaska to hunt the fascinating mud volcano and see a rare phenomenon that happens to lie in the amazing forests of the Wrangell Mountains. You can access the mud volcano at the Tolsona Wilderness Campground.
