ANCHORAGE- Pavlof Volcano continues to erupt on the Alaska Peninsula, about 625 miles southwest of Anchorage.
   
The Alaska Volcano Observatory reports a plume of steam, gas and ash reached up to 22,000 feet Sunday and was visible on satellite images drifting southeast over the north Pacific.
   
Trace amounts of ash were reported in Sand Point, a city of nearly 1,000 on Popof Island about 55 miles east of the volcano.
   
The volcano observatory says seismic activity remains elevated at the 8,262-foot volcano that began its latest eruption May 13.
   
The volcano last erupted in 2007 for 29 days.
