Can you see Anatahan?

It's there. Look carefully.

Today seems like the first clear day in weeks. A few of us hiked up from the Korean War Memorial up to Suicide Cliff as part of the Beautify CNMI project to mark a set of trails that will link the northern end of the island to Lake Susupe. When we reached the top, off in the distance, Anatahan was visible. I remember the first time I saw it from Saipan, years ago, I was shocked at how big it is. It's been about a year since it's erupted enough to cloud Saipan's skies. Can you see it?

Here is another unlikely scene you could have witnessed if you were there.

Seeing Anatahan was like being able to see Neverland.

So that is why the guys over on Middle Road are picking on you, Angelo. You 'n MJ hangin' at Neverland.

There is good fishing up there. Folks lived up there for years following WWII.

We should mount an expedition. Would have to get all kinds of permission slips from the office (DLNR, F&W, CRM and maybe more), but it would sure be fun.

I dont' know why, but there's just something really thrilling about seeing Anatahan. It's only another island, I suppose, but nonetheless there is just something very exciting about seeing it.
