Where in the World is Gary? #198

This new series is a throwback to the game, “Where in the World is Carmen San Diego?” I will give a brief description of a place, including its latitude and longitude and several “interesting” facts about the location. I will also try to include a picture or two from my visit to the place. You, the reader, can then hazard a guess to answer the question posed in the game.

I will reveal the correct location on the following day. Hopefully, this type of post will encourage interaction and perhaps stimulate comments. Good Luck!

The answer to yesterday’s place (#197) is Mittenwald, Germany

Where in the World is Gary?   #198

Latitude — 20° 43′ North

Longitude — 156° 10′ West

This place features the world’s largest dormant volcano. Its crater looks like an alien landscape, perhaps a moonscape.

Sunrises and bicycling are favorite activities here. An endemic plant here is found nowhere else in the world; it may live for fifty years, then flowers once and dies.
