1. Mauna Ulu Marker
Inscription. On May 24, 1969, a series of lava fountains erupted from a fissure which extended roughly from Aloi to Alae craters. The fountains soon concentrated between the two craters.
Mauna Ulu, a new lava shield, was forming. By mid-summer of 1970, lava from Manua Ulu had filled both craters and drastically altered the surrounding landscape. Mauna Ulu's eruptions continued for the next four years.
