point udall & the millenium monument

Situated at the east end of St. Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands is the easternmost point in the United States including territories. It was named for Stewart Udall, United States Secretary of the Interior under Presidents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson.

A sundial known as the Millennium Monument was built above Point Udall for the New Year’s celebration in 2000 — it marks the azimuth of the first U.S. sunrise of that year. From the monument an informal trail of moderate difficulty leads down to the point, composed of uplifted and rotated volcanic rock.
