Mystery Volcano Photo #21

The last mystery volcano turned out to be a bit too easy ... so we'll try some user-submitted photos on for size!

After last week’s attempt to revive Mystery Volcano Photo – and the discovery (by me, thanks to you readers) of Tin Eye – I’ve had to ponder how to continue. Well, I think the best thing to do is to try using reader images that hopefully aren’t hiding out on the web somewhere. So, that is what we’ll try …


As for MVP #20, the answer was, indeed, Edziza in Canada (congrats to Stephen). Edziza is an eroded composite stratovolcano that last erupted ~950 AD (+/- 1,000 years … !) The volcano has erupted basalts to more felsic magmas, many of which were subglacial eruptions.
