(See previous post.) The shape of the volcano isn't right, but volcanos change shape, so that may be why.

On Google Earth, it just looks like a while lump. This image would make a lovely overlay. (-58.399804, -26.386895) (Rough KML.)

A wider shot of the Wellesley view. Near Boston Marathon #3 (GCNC5K), waypoint 1 of the 3 stage multi. We were able to find stages 1 and 2, but not the final. I hate striking out... but we got a great walk with fabulous company, and I got a ton of awesome pictures with my new camera.

Not a bad outing after all.
