Augustine Volcano

I am back on the Kittiwake. We motored from Homer out to Augustine Volcano (10 hour ride) to take empty fuel barrels and old batteries off of the island. Augustine is an active volcano and erupted in 2006. We have 5 GPS stations on it to monitor its activity.
The Kittiwake anchored at Augustine.

After a long day of slinging gear off the volcano. Nice hair!

A beautiful sunset as we come into port at Homer. 10pm and the sun is just beginning to set.

Augustine is in the Cook Inlet off the coast of the Alaska Peninsula about 70 miles southwest of Homer.
