When you get to Point Udall on my home island of St. Croix, you’ll no doubt want to look and train your camera lens to the east. After all, you’ll be standing at the easternmost point of the entire United States of America, a distinctively uncommon geographic trait you’ll want to soak in to the fullest.
At the same time, though, you shouldn’t miss the majesty playing out over your left shoulder. That’s where you’ll see the scene pictured above.
Buck Island just offshore to the right, the surf pounding St. Croix’s reefs and northeastern shoreline, the vibrant greens of the underbrush and trees flowing down to the sea…
Yeah, even with Point Udall’s uncommon cachet, you won’t want to miss this.
