This map shows the approximate location of the volcano.   This volcano is at the top of the Ring of Fire, as mentioned in a previous post.   There has been a great deal of activity on the Ring of Fire this past Spring.   A giant volcano eruption was one of  Maki’s possible explanations for the new ice age in Maki and the Bolide.
