If the distance between Pacific island national parks were layered over North America, it may look something like this.

Don’t worry.

This illustration is simply meant to offer some perspective of the vast distances separating the 11 national park units in the Pacific islands. The black polygon represents the Pacific island national parks with American Memorial Park and War in the Pacific NHP on the left, Hawaii’s 7 national park units on the right, and the National Park of American Samoa at the bottom.

Do you know which are the southernmost and westernmost parks in the U.S. National Park System?

Hint: You just read their names.
