Waimea Canyon is also called the Grand Canyon of Hawaii. On the western side of Kauai, the vast canyon is stunning in many ways--it's sheer cliffs, grand waterfalls, snaking rivers, red dirt, and vast contrast to the rest of the island. Last summer I backpacked down and into this valley with some good friends and it was one of the most majestic times I've had in Hawaii. This time we just took a drive up the canyon road and enjoyed the beauty of it all. As we were driving up a rain storm started overtaking the canyon, filling it with misty clouds. I attempted to capture the beauty, but it's always better in person. If you're ever in Kauai, checking this place out is a must.
