Hawaii #2

Hawaii is in Oceania a geographic region comprising Australasia, Melanesia, Micronesia and Polynesia.  It spans the eastern and the western hemispheres.

There are eight main Hawaiian islands, seven of which are permanently inhabited. The island of Ni'ihau is privately managed by brothers Bruce and Keith Robinson; access is restricted to those who have permission from the island's owners.  Access to uninhabited Kaho'olawe island is also restricted.

"Kahoʻolawe has always been sparsely populated, due to its lack of fresh water.[7] During World War II, Kahoʻolawe was used as a training ground and bombing range by the Armed Forces of the United States. After decades of protests, the U.S. Navy ended live-fire training exercises on Kahoʻolawe in 1990, and the whole island was transferred to the jurisdiction of the state of Hawaii in 1994. The Hawaii State Legislature established the Kahoʻolawe Island Reserve to restore and to oversee the island and its surrounding waters. Today Kahoʻolawe can be used only for native Hawaiian cultural, spiritual, and subsistence purposes"... Wikipedia

Kaho'olawe Now considered a sacred site.

On to our next destination in this search through our country.... it's Hawaii.  Probably the most unique thing about Hawaii is it's location, no where near anything else.

From Wikipedia....
Hawaii (/həˈwi/ (About this sound listen) hə-WY-eeHawaiianHawaiʻi [həˈvɐjʔi]) is the 50th and most recent state to have joined the United States, having received statehood on August 21, 1959.[10] Hawaii is the only U.S. state located in Oceania, the only U.S. state located outside North America, and the only one composed entirely of islands. It is the northernmost island group in Polynesia, occupying most of an archipelago in the central Pacific Ocean.[11]

And a postcard to get you in the right frame of mind.
