Hi!
We (I mean me) are in the fire belt, so we have a lot of volcanos, Over there (your place) are lot's of mountains, We here can never be sure of a mountain, it may be a volcano in disguise, just like our Mount Pinatubo!

This a perfect coned volcano, would you believe this is a tourist site?


And this is a submerged volcano, Taal volcano, it's a tourist site, it wont explode in the next 300 years



Post your mountain stamps or volcanos out there, is there a pompei volcano stamp?

Thanks

I'd say that there is likely Pompei, Mount Vesuvius in a stamp of Italy.

There was a volcano stamp for the 2006 "American Wonders" sheet of 40. The volcano is located in Hawaii, there were 3 stamps total from that sheet featuring something from there. I will try to post a scan of one on cover.

Nic - I was in the PI and saw Mount P several times before it got mad and blew it's top. I saw Clark AFB before and after (on TV). It is absolutely amazing how devistating the damage was.

Here's one from British Solomon (the Solomon Islands since 1947 or something like that).

nic, I am one who is not surprised that Mt Pinatubo is a tourist site. Here in Guatemala, climbing volcanos, dormant or active is a national pass time and also a tourist attraction.

Trivia time:
philb's Guatemala stamp is one of the Pacaya volcano. It is one of many volcanos in Guatemala and is today the country's most active. It has exploded twice in the past 20 years. It is a popular tourist attraction. Hundreds, and probably well over a thousand people climb it every week. My last climb was in June when there was a small lava flow. Every time I climb Pacaya, it is different due to it's activity. It is actually one of my kid's and their friend's favorite "playgrounds". Note: philb's avatar has the Agua volcano under the airplane's wing.

Thanks Philb!
quigngt - One of my favorite coin is a 1971 10C showing Monolito De Quirigua and it looks like there's a volcano behind the Monolito?. Thanks for the info!

Laswabbie- (Trivia- please bear w/me guys) A funny thing happened when Mt. Pinatubo exploded, I live 95Kms (straight line) away from it. Came from a hospital to have eyes checked, went out at 3pm, it was surprisingly pitch black, thought my eyes were going bad, until car headlights started lighting up and white ash powder began to fall like snow. One inch of white ash accumulated on my house roof. It was just like in the movies! The Clark military were great help in assisting and evacuating a lot of people. A lot of Heroes from Clark AFB were seen that day!

Phil, #118 is a beautiful stamp. I have several. I don't have my album at hand but I believe all the stamps of this issue #114-123, have several perf variations.

Here are those volcano stamps I promised. I thought the star wars stamp was appropiate because of the planet being mostly lava flows.

Star Wars translates to most age groups & cultures well. It is a Sci-Fi Western with a spiritual twist.

Hi nic, I wanted to add this one to your thread. It is from the set issued by Indonesia with a surtax to assist victims of the 1954 Merapi volcano eruption.



I too have volcanoes around me, one of which, St. Helens, made a mess of the neighborhood in 1980.
cheers,
OG

The San Miguel volcano appears on many of the early issues from El Salvador
