2887 24 May 2016 @ 1121 --- MAB Spitting to 6", the first activity seen by myself this season. Not even steam has been visible on my prior visits. I did not stay to see if it grew into an eruption
2607 01 Nov 2015 @ 0959 --- MAB Vent filled and overflowed, easy to see the steamy water in the cool conditions. No eruption. Also filled to overflow 1106 w no eruption or maybe that IS it's current type of eruption
2377 18 Sep 2015 @ 1135 --- MAB Filled and flooded the crater area, with a few blips. I have not seen that for a while. It was promising enough that I recorded it, expecting it to continue to eruption, but that's all it did.
1784 22 Jun 2015 @ 2003 --- MAB Returning from the Congress area I saw it IE, would have called it a near start last year, or even near-end; it was full and splashing to 6-8". This however was the extent of the eruption.
1694 06 Jun 2015 @ 1330 --- MAB Fireball filled and overflowed, but did not erupt. This is an approximate time
1679 01 Jun 2015 @ 1011 --- MAB Fireball filled and overflowed. No eruption.
1586 14 May 2015 @ 0940 14 May 2015 @ 1400 MAB Fireball filled 1330, tried with a few splashes 1346, then subsided. No eruption as of when I left 1400.
1551 01 May 2015 @ 1300 01 May 2015 @ 1315 MAB Noticed first steam from Fireball around 1300. By 1315 it was full with small splashes that did not result in a regular eruption before quieting. Again at 1841 it was steaming.
