Tok, AK (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: 16,237 ft (4,949 m) mighty Mt Sanford in the Wrangell Mountains of eastern interior of Alaska. Third biggest volcano in the United States.

This view is from the Tok Cutoff Road which runs between Tok and Glenallen.

On March 12, 1948, Northwest Airlines Flight 4422 crashed into Mount Sanford. All 24 passengers and 6 crew members were killed. The wreckage was quickly covered by snow and was not found again until 1999. Mt Sanford holds many secrets...

About katy99780

I've lived in Alaska since 1969. I love this wild land. The extremes of the far north shape and affect every living thing. Extremes of weather, elevation, daylight hours, isolation, flora and fauna, nothing in Nature is insignificant.I have a Davis Vantage Pro weather station, uploading to Wunderground, (Turks on the Tundra) the National Weather Service, the Citizen Weather Observation Program and MADIS (Meteorological Assimilation Data Ingest System).
