Continuing with vacation highlights....
Waimea Canyon is a recommended "don't miss" sight on Kauai. And for good reason. I'm glad we paid attention to the guidebook and made the drive up for the view.
This was the one and only place I wish I'd worn long pants and had a sweatshirt while on Kauai. In just the short eleven mile drive we were in cold, foggy, chilly weather.
But the view was well worth a bit of shivering.
The canyon is 10 miles long, 1 mile wide, and more than 3,500-feet deep.
We were glad we continued on past the lodge/museum as the upper viewpoints provided a unique view of the Na Pali coast.
(I'm smiling in this picture but it's forced. I have a real fear of heights and we were right on the edge of a cliff. A kind tourist took our picture and was joking that he hoped Kim had behaved himself so I didn't feel the need to push him off the cliff.)
Just look at that coastline. It's really something, isn't it?
Next post I'll show our hike along that trail.
We hiked down into the canyon just a bit. Hiking to the bottom is an option, as is camping out.

It's difficult to stop staring when presented with such a sight.
I'm embarrassed to admit I've never yet been to the Grand Canyon. But this sight helps me appreciate the attraction.
