This is another image of "cloud streets", which IotD first documented here.

This make me wonder what happened to my friend who said he wanted to go to Alaska after grad.

I'd like to see a broader view because all three islands are volcanoes, judging from the shape and snow pattern.

The Cleveland Volcano would be an excellent name for a sports team, or a bar.

And they say they don't make any new land.

Okay, this is weird, but at first glance, seeing just the top of the image, these looked like mushrooms to me . . . but that was pre-tea . . .

Thanks for the images Bruce! The volcanoes look wonderful. It looks like Herbert had a big explosion with a lovely large crater as evidence. Now I want to fly over the Aleutians on a clear day.

Hey, CaMama! What part of the Left Coast are you in, anyway? I'm a native Californian (although I moved away when I was three...).

There's a steam plume coming off of Mt Cleveland in Bruce's pic, too. Cool.

How about Great Circles? The navigation routes - shortest distance between 2 points - are figured on great circles, but I don't have a globe handy to figure them out.
