Mystery Volcano Photo #15

It has been a slow week for volcano news (and a busy week for me), so I apologize for the abundance of MVPs this week. I’ve tried to find a good one in the many images submitted to me by Eruptions readers, and #15 is just one of those photos. If you have images you’d like to share with me for MVP or other uses, please email them to me at

. (However, I should note that you can’t win by identifying your own volcano photo!)

MVP #13 was Lava Butte near Newberry volcano in Oregon. It is a lovely small scoria cone that you can walk/drive to the summit. From there, you get a spectacular view of the central Oregon Cascades and Newberry. I took this photo sometime in 2002 (I think).

MVP #14 was an old photo of the summit cone of Mt. Vesuvius went it last erupted in the 1940′s.

    Hate to admit it, but The Bobs got it all the way at #2 (nice job). It is Bagana in PNG sent to me by Eruptions reader Paul Callander (taken in 1978).
