Waimea Canyon, Kauai
Photograph by Ingrid Balko Zeitler
On Kauai’s western side you’ll find a stunning sight. Often called the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific,” Waimea Canyon is a mile wide, fourteen miles long, and more than half a mile deep.
This picture, taken from the main Waimea Canyon overlook shows the sharp contrast from red sand to green plants to blue sky.
The canyon offers excellent hiking and sight-seeing throughout.
