Greetings! I just had to check in a share a picture! I insisted on going to see the "Grand Canyon of Hawaii" today so I got in the car at 5:35 am (the time change has me awake very early) and drove nearly two hours to 4,000 feet above sea level to Waimea Canyon Park. I stopped at several lookout points and was so moved by the view. The last stop was Kalalua Point. When I walked up to the rail guards, the twists and turns and early departure was all made worth it.
Kauai is such a magical place. Sure, it is windy as heck right now and the clouds have been moving in and out since we got here but we had such a blast at Hanalei Beach today and a wonderful trip down the Wailua River.
More adventures await as we spend two more full days here before departing on Thursday. It is going to be quite difficult to leave.
