Hmmmm. A volcano with a ski lift. I first checked New Zealand, then Peru. Perhaps a hint would help...


Here's a hint: politically, it is in one continent, but geographically, it is in another.

With the angle of the sun, I suspect that it would be in the northern hemisphere.

Hi Haris,

Actually, the game is that you can only post a challenge if you've correctly guessed the previous one. The full set of rules is somewhere among the first posts in this topic.
