kauai – third day/part two – waimea canyon

When I initially started planning our trip, I was going to leave Waimea Canyon off the list.  It just didn’t look like the image of Hawaiian “things to do” that I had created in my head.  It is referred to as the Grand Canyon of Hawaii and I was focusing my thoughts on beaches and the tropical feel of things.

I’m so glad I continued to read reviews and eventually added this to our plans.  It was an amazing site to see…so grand and so full of color and detail.


Just doing what dad’s do…torturing children!


For some size perspective, you can look to the center of the photograph and see the helicopter tour flying through the canyon.  It was immense!

And day three just kept getting better and better.  From the canyon, we drove further and our next stop would be a chance to see the Kalalau Valley and Na Pali coast from up high!
