Hello and "Guess the volcano"

Hello! So this is Janine taking over Sarda's blog for a few days. Things may prove to be a little different to what you're used to... But to ease you in I thought we could play a game... You're all experienced I know with Sarda's "mystery fossil" feature, but see how you do with guessing which volcano this is:


Given Sarda's usual blog themes I can imagine a lot of you are either palaeontologists or biologists, and consequently may be unfamiliar with looking at volcanoes. So here is a hint: this is the second tallest active volcano in the world (bit controversial, some would say it is the tallest), and it's my favourite by the way...

John Hopkin said...

It's Cotopaxi, in Ecuador.

The Snows of Kilimanjaro by Ernest Hemingway?

Jean-Luc Picard said...

Is it Mount Fuji? I'm not sure if that is a volcano.

You are doing a good job Janine.
