USA ~ St John - Virgin Islands National Park ~

... Beautiful aerial island view... because "Virgin Islands National Park" encompasses two-third of the island I think I can consider this one as a new NP for my collectionシ... a place of unspoiled beauty and crystal aquamarine waters... as being part of US territory you can use US postage stamps... (but always looking for one with the Virgin Islands stamps)... Thanks a lot Leanna!!【ツ】

The United States Virgin Islands (USVI) are located in the Caribbean  bordered by the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea. The USVI consist of 4 larger islands: St. Croix, St. Thomas, St. John and Water Island, and some 50 smaller islets and cays. The island of St John, at just 9 miles long and 3 miles wide (28 sq mi), is the smallest of the US Virgin Islands.

Since 1956,  full two-thirds of St. John's 20 square miles (53 square km)  is protected as Virgin Islands National Park, administered by the United States National Park Service.
