The Sunday Traveler ~ Kauai, A Walk in The Clouds

Looking into Waimea Canyon from the ground floor level

Kauai’s Waimea Canyon. The Grand Canyon of the Pacific. Approximately ten miles long and 3,000 feet deep. We drove up the mountain on an afternoon that was a mix of rain and teases of sun. Once at the top, walking up to the lookout deck to look out and down at this spectacle of red dirt canyon, water falls,river, green patches and clouds was breathtaking.  The clouds. It  is pretty much beyond words.

There were quite a few people on the lookout deck, but I got lost in this view, and was by myself walking in the clouds.

The sun came and went for more clarity for brief periods. And the red dirt is a real thing; with the rain we had red mud on our shoes!

The copious amounts of rain received on the island in recent weeks created spectacular waterfalls (there are two waterfalls on the left in this photo, and one other one, can you find it?).

Next week we’ll visit another area of the island for a closer look at a pretty spectacular waterfall.

  6. Beautiful photos, Angeline. I share your propensity for getting lost in clouds/fog. These photos bring back many fond memories of working on the bridge in this type of weather.
