I am buried in the final days of the spring semester (and academic year), so I thought it might be a good time to post a new Mystery Volcano Photo. If you remember, MVP #36 ended up being easier than I expected - Clear Lake in Oregon, a lake formed by a lava flow from Sand Mountain ~3,000 years ago that blocked the McKenzie River, which drowned a forest (see top left). Eruptions reader Cole Kingsbury got the location and date on the second guess, so our current standings look like this:

  • Boris Behncke - 6

  • Don Crain - 5

  • The Bobs - 4

  • gijs - 2

  • Chris Reykjavik - 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

  • Eva Hedstrom - 0.5

As for MVP #37, I have a photo submitted by one of my former students to mark the end of the academic year at Denison.

Good luck!
