    This is cheating… always these volcanos that are impossible to sail past;)

    My guess would be Akademia Nauks little brother Karymsky.

    I’ll have to agree with Eric, it’s definitely Lassen Peak.

    Well, again I think I have something a little tricky – a shot with some clouds from an off-trail location – and somebody gets it on the first try. This is, indeed, a shot of Lassen Peak from the south side of Chaos Crags – not the usual shot for Lassen, but enough for Rodger to nail it.

    Lassen Peak is another example of a major geologic feature with aspect than is highly changeable with season, weather and time of day. Erik chose a good image of Lassen; it is not view that is the most photo-documented on the web.

    Good lord, I thought that was a low-intensity ash cloud around the summit and I just *knew* it was Popo. 🙂

    I was going with one of the lesser know peaks in southern Oregon, based on tree line and type, so not far off.

    I thought it might be Mammoth because of the glaciated crags peeking over the mountain’s shoulder on the right. I considered Lassen but couldn’t remember similar formations nearby. Haven’t been there but twice. Memory dims.

    I should have known! I have been on top of Lassen twice! What threw me was the cinder rubble in the forground. That is what led me to guess Shastina, but there was something about the features on the picture that, as Roger said, spoke Lassen. I love Lassen and Lassen Park. It is a beautiful area.

    Damn, I wish I’d checked earlier – I recognized it instantly, being from Chester. I figured you’d put a picture of Lassen up sooner or later …

    And Lassen looks very, very different depending on the angle. Though, personally, I don’t even think it’s the most interesting volcano in the Park. Too touristy.
