In Alaska there are many volcanoes, some still active, and earthquakes are frequent in this seismically active area. Although none are currently oozing lava as seen on the Big Island in Hawaii, this is geologically a "firey" area. Alaska is also noted for icebergs, snow, cold, icy roads, winter sports, avalanches, and glaciers. Lots of glaciers.

Together, these notable characteristics make Alaska a land of fire and ice, the title of this web page. For more information on Alaska, volcanoes, and ice, click on the links below.
