Mystery Volcano Photo #27

Quiet weekend on the whole, volcano-wise, beyond the articles about the latest eruption at Karangetang. So, we'll start this week with a new Mystery Volcano Photo. The last MVP was Tarawera in a shot I took from a road on the back side of the volcano, so that leaves the current standings looking like this:

Boris Behncke - 4
Don Crain - 4
The Bobs - 3
gijs - 2
volcanista - 1
Lockwood - 1
Elizabeth - 1
Ralph - 1
Anne - 1
Cam - 1

Damon Hynes - 1
Marco - 1
Doug C. - 1
Diane - 1
Stephen - 1
MK, Alberta - 1
Kultsi - 1
Henrik - 1
Zane - 1

Now, here is the new one. Good luck!

When we last left MVP, the latest entry actually did give people some trouble - but Don Crain ended up landing the winner at guess #15. The volcano is Ollagüe along the Chilean/Bolivian border. I took this shot from the road that comes up from the south towards Ollagüe (the town). Now, I have…
We'll try again with a finding a good Mystery Volcano Photo! The last MVP was Mt. Meru in Tanzania, submitted by Michael Dalton-Smith. Now, I thought this image was going to be a little harder than it turned out to be as the shot of Meru on Wikipedia is a very similar shot, but that happens…
MVP 23 revealed ... and 24 introduced! Mystery Volcano Photo #23 was, in fact, Middle Sister volcano in Oregon, part of the picturesque Three Sisters near Bend. Middle Sister is a partially eroded (by glaciers) composite volcano with a mix basaltic andesite to andesite lava flows and tephra…
Maybe I should be pleased that in the last Mystery Volcano Photo took a whole five guesses rather than one or two, so I count it as success! The correct guess was made by Dr. Boris Behncke, so that elevates him into a tie for first. Current Standings: The Bobs - 3 Don Crain - 3 Boris Behncke - 3…

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

My guess would be Akademia Nauks little brother Karymsky.

Mount Bachelor, in the Cascades.

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

Mammoth Mountain, CA?

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.

Good job, Rodger!
Thank you Erik!

hehehe Erik,. even I saw that this was lassen peak,and I have not even been there, just read about it and have edited photos of it like a 100 times at work,. :)

first that gave this mountain of is the firs, then , I tought ok its california. so it has to be lassen,shasta doenst look like this at all :)

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.
