    Default What are the domes directly south of FBX called?

    When I am up on campus hill, I can see two large domes on the horizon directly south. What are the names of these domes? And has anyone you know ever been there?

    These are definitely not those domes. I meant dome in the sense of ester dome or donnely dome. They arwe big hills. I think one is around these coordinates: 64° 5'35.24"N147°27'19.91"W

    I think that one of the domes is Clear Creek Butte, which is accessed via the Bonnifield Trail. If you Google it you will find some trip reports, it looks like a winter trail. Hope this helps.

    Also out there is Wood River Butte, and the Japan Hills. Stop into the map office in the Geo Building and take a look at a topo. That should help you figure out what you're looking at.
