The Colors of Maug, Northern Mariana Islands.

I recently returned from a trip up to Maug, an island apart of the Northern Mariana Islands chain. It is roughly around 330 miles North of Saipan, surrounded by Uracas (North of Maug) and Asuncion (South of Maug). Years ago, the island used to resemble a cone-shaped volcanoe that can be found through out the Northern Mariana Islands chain. After an obvious violent eruption, the remote island transformed into the three islands that can be seen to this day. The topography of the island is very rugged. Steep hills and sheering volcanic ridges pattern all the islands. There are certain areas where vertical ridges protrude outward from the islands.

Overall, I enjoyed Tarzan Falls much better than Sigua Falls just because I was able to photograph more sequences of the waterfall. From what i’ve been told, that was two out of many more interesting hikes to do on Guam. I definitely look forward to discovering more natural beauties on the island of Guam as well as all the other islands of the Marianas.

Tarzan Falls was a much shorter hike compared to Sigua Falls. It could be very easy for one to get lost due to the different roads that weave in and out of this particular area of Guam. It was an easy 30 minute walk to the top of the falls. From there you hike down and can discover different sized falls that make the entire experience more interesting.
