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 sometimes - and it did take 9 guesses this time! Congrats to MK in Alberta for getting that MVP. As for Meru, the last known eruption from this African volcano was in 1910, a VEI 2 explosive event from the aptly named "Ash Cone". Meru appears to have been relatively active during the late 1800's and early 1900's, but no signs of activity have been noted since.
