Heres a picture of the active volcano on the island of Pagan. It was a pretty crazy experience living on the island for two weeks. More pictures to come..
A minuscule island littered with luscious coconot groves and pine tree forests, Pagan is apart of the unique island chain of the Northern Mariana Islands. Previously inhabited by local families from the southern island of Saipan, they were forced to be evacuated due to the rude awakenings of the northern volcano. Currently, there are a number persons that live on the Northern Mariana Islands Chain that live the stress-free life. This video compiles my last trip to Pagan which was the summer of 2010. I was apart of a research team to conduct a census on certain animals on the island. Currently, the military is interested in turning Pagan into a firing range. After viewing this video, ask yourself if this is what you want Pagan to be used for…. PEACE
I had some time to kill so I walked over to the ocean and noticed this view. A great contrast of colors. Today brought great weather which always contributes to productivity. Always appreciate good weather because when it rains, it pours.
I found this beauty while my partner and I were exploring the back roads of Rota. We saw this hilitai from afar allowing myself to creep out of the car very slowly to snap a few shots. It’s yellow spotted skin helps camouflage the creature into the rootedness of the dense Rota jungle. The closer I approached, the more it proved to be a very shy and timid creatures. The hilitai is one of many creatures that can be find on the beautiful island of Rota.
