You saw what I saw – photo answer
Here is a photograph as it was originally posted in the Volcano House Story.
I studied this photograph knowing something was wrong, but I couldn’t put my finger on it. Mauna Loa and Steaming Bluff weren’t on that side of the caldera, right? So, I flipped it around and this is what I came up with.
Seeing the photo from this direction restored my sense of balance. Many of you who commented on this post yesterday figured it out even faster than I did. Well done.
