Where America’s Sun Sets

By Linda Tancs

In the heart of Polynesia, America’s sun sets.  And no, it isn’t Hawaii (although America’s 50th state does constitute one of three points of the Polynesian triangle).  It’s American Samoa, an island territory in the South Pacific comprising five volcanic islands and two atolls.  Its national park is one of the most remote in the United States.  Covering three of the islands, the predominate land mass of the park is rainforest, promising lush views amid long, unhurried hikes.  This is a must-see for the ecotourist seeking an unspoiled, uncrowded destination.
