Grand Canyon of the Pacific
Kauai, Hawaii, U.S.A.
Waimea Canyon is another unique natural feature of Kauai
not found elsewhere in the Hawaiian Islands. On a clear day
it certainly deserves the title "Grand Canyon of the Pacific".
I stayed on the rim for all my photography, (except for the
helicopter ride which came later).
There are hiking trails in Waimea Canyon, but my Hawaii
hikes ended up being limited to volcanoes.
Waimea Canyon also features waterfalls. Their numbers
increase after it rains.
Waimea Canyon was the work of a river, another similarity
it has to the Grand Canyon.
This Kauai vista was taken near Waimea Canyon.
