The Five Elements of Santa Cruz Island

In the history book, the island Santa Cruz offers many interesting chapters: being disconnected from the rest of the world until mid-18th century ( Chumas people enjoyed the disconnection before) , being controlled by several missionaries and expeditions, serving as one of the most critical base during the World War II and some point being the largest privately owned island. Today this has become a national park, one of the attractive destinations for island packers.

During my recent visits to this island, these are the stories of the nature I could listen to.
