BEYOND GREEN MARSHES LOOM PEAKS OF ICE Hague Volcano and Pavlof can be seen from Dushkin Lagoon only on clear days. Eight plates were exposed before asuccessful picture showing both volcanoes was made. The valley in the foreground, though lush with flower-starred grass that gives the appearance ofsolid turf, isawell-nigh impassable swamp laced with hundreds of streams and ponds. For nearly a month the members of the National Geographic Society expedition had todrink unpalat able water from still pools. Fortunately, water does not become stagnant in this climate.
