I'm mired in a pile of grading right now, so I thought I'd throw out a new Mystery Volcano Photo culled from the copious reader submissions of volcano images. Thanks to everyone who has sent me picture to use on the blog! The last MVP took a little longer to solve, but Robert Somerville did correctly identify the image as Helmet Peak in British Columbia. Helmet Peak is part of the Milbanke Sound Cones, a series of small cinder cones that are likely Holocene in age (last ~10,000 years). With that MVP, the standing currently look like this:

  • Boris Behncke – 7

  • Don Crain – 6

  • The Bobs – 4

  • Chris Reykjavik - 3

  • Robert Somerville – 3

  • gijs – 2

  • Doug C. – 2

  • volcanista – 1

  • Lockwood – 1

  • Elizabeth – 1

  • Ralph – 1

  • Anne – 1

  • Cam – 1

  • gg – 1

  • Damon Hynes – 1

  • Marco – 1

  • Diane – 1

  • Stephen – 1

  • MK, Alberta – 1

  • Kultsi – 1

  • Henrik – 1

  • Zane – 1

  • Rodger Wilson – 1

  • Robin Campion – 1

  • Jan Nygard – 1

  • Cole Kingsbury – 1

  • Manuela – 1

  • Phillip Mulholland – 1

  • Ron Schott – 1

  • Dylan Ray – 1

  • Eva Hedstrom – 0.5

Below is the next mystery volcano photo, #44. As you mull this over, you can also check out the volcano photo fail over at Our Amazing Planet - they identified the famous Richat Structure in Mauritania as a volcanic feature. I guess somebody didn't do their research before posting that article. Good luck!
