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.

Here's #15, submitted by a reader ... Enjoy!
