Is this the Grand Canyon? Yes, of the Pacific! Waimea Canyon is massive (about 10 miles long and up to 3,000 feet deep). Impressive with its reds and greens as well as the rain moving in
The Kalalau Lookout provides a breathtaking panaromic view – the drop to the sea is 4,000 feet below! Out of the Rain and Mist Comes a Band of Many Colors.
I have to agree about being one of the wettest spots on earth – a little soggy by the time I reached the car! Over 450 inches of rain per year.
The 52-foot Kilauea Lighthouse is on the northernmost tip of Kauai. On the lookout for humpback whales and found some seabirds instead. This area is also known for the Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge, a sanctuary for seabirds. Be on the lookout for boobies and albatrosses nesting in the ruggedness.
The Opaekaa Falls were featured in the movie “Blue Hawaii”.
Made famous by the TV show “Fantasy Island”.
