Scientific American has put together an interesting slide show of images from the Mount Redoubt eruption.

The volcano has moved to a more steady, but less explosive, eruption pattern.

And there are web cams of the volcano available here and here.

Mt. Redoubt's eruption in 1990: A dramatic, mushroom-shaped eruption column rises above Mt. Redoubt on April 21, 1990. Clouds of this shape, which are produced when the upper part of an eruption column attains neutral buoyancy and is spread out above the troposphere-stratosphere boundary, are common during powerful explosive eruptions.
