Hello, I'm a volcano. (Well, almost -- I'm a volcanic cinder cone, the simplest kind of volcano. But still.) I live in a city in North America -- the only one of its size to have one of me within its boundaries. I'm named for a mountain in Israel where the Transfiguration of Christ supposedly took place. Can you name the city I live in, and for bonus points, me?
