Wailua River Overlook

Wailua River Overlook

Lush Kauai shows off why it is the “Garden Isle” in this shot from Kauai Carver overlooking the Wailua River in Wailua, Kauai. The picture was taken from the Hindu Monastery, which is open to the public.

In the foreground small palms arch over Ti (sometimes called Ki) plants, which are used in food, prayers, and gardening. In the background, the Wailua River runs wide, full of rain water from one of our planet’s wettest spots.
