Title: Apollo 14 crewmen near site of volcanic eruption on Hawaii
Prime crewmen and backup crewmen of the Apollo 14 mission look over an area 
near the site of a volcanic eruption in Aloi Alae, Hawaii. Astronauts Alan
B.  Shepard Jr. (leaning with left hand on ground) and Edgar D. Mitchell
(behind  Shepard, wearing dark glasses) are the prime crewmen scheduled to
walk on the  moon. Astronauts Eugene A. Cernan (almost obscured at extreme
left) and Joe  H. Engle (partially visible, on Cernan's right) are back-up
crew commander  and lunar module pilot, respectively, for the mission.
Others in the  photograph are Pat Crosland (in hard hat), a geologist and a
park ranger in  Hawaii Volcanoes National Park; Michael C McEwen (facing
Mitchell) of the  Geology Branch, Lunar and Earth Sciences Division, Manned
Spacecraft Center;  and Astronaut Bruce McCandless II, who made the trip to
serve as a spacecraft  communicator during simulations of extravehicular
activity (EVA) on the lunar  surface.
