CLOSECALL's got it!

The view is from the Rams Head trail that starts by the beach at Salt Pond Bay, just around the corner from the near point of land. The volcanic terrain and relatively undeveloped island scene are characteristic of St. John, most of which is a national park. The turk's heads in the foreground were a climatological clue and the Concordia Eco-Resort is visible on Google Earth.

The national park includes much of the water around St. John. The park service has provided moorings in the "no anchorage" zones. There are 8 overnight moorings at the head of the bay (out of sight, around the point), just off a very nice, sandy beach. There are 2 day moorings in the foreground, off the rock and pebble beach.

Looks like we have a new member of this forum. Your turn to post, CLOSECALL!
